In this year, the House of Faberge, known for its exquisitely jeweled eggs, became a joint-stock company with a capital of 3 million rubles. The receipt for three shares of stock translates, "By producing the shares of 'limited liability partnership K. Faberge' and by presenting this receipt, the above named partnership is committed to give Otto Bayer 3 fully paid for shares of the 'limited liability partnership K. Faberge' worth five thousand rubles each, numbers five hundred eighty-six through five hundred eighty-eight (586-588), totaling fifteen thousand rubles (15000 R)". It is signed "K. Faberge" and countersigned by Karl's son Eugene, "E. Faberge". The following year, in 1917 during the Russian Revolution, the business was taken over by a "Committee of the Employees of the Company K Faberge" and then nationalized in 1918. The Faberges left Russia; Karl died brokenhearted in 1920. Light toning, foxing and creasing to single 8.5" x 11" document, else very good. With PSA/DNA COA. Scarce.
