A FABERGE SILVER-GILT AND CLOISONNE ENAMELED PENCIL, MOSCOW 1908-1917, probably Fedor Ruckert. The elongated case overall enameled in green, white, purple and blue in the Pan-Slavic style. The end with swivel suspension loop. Hallmarked Moscow, 1908-1917, Cyrillic makers mark КФ for Karl Faberge and 88 silver standard. Length 3.25 inches (8.3cm).
There are many examples of similar pencils by Faberge which also display the work masters initials of Fedor Ruckert and others which simply display Ruckert's mark, subsequently most agree that such pencils are most likely a product of Ruckert craftsmanship
