Kudinov/Fabergé/1912' and'Kamer-Kazak since 1894/N. Weight of second bronze is 747.17 grams. The precise origin of this figure, which appears to be a copy of - or models for - the well-known Fabergé hardstone figures of the Kamer-Kazak guards of the Empresses, is something of a mystery. Commissioned by Emperor Nicholas II in 1912, the hardstone figures were portraits from life, the guards visiting the studio of Fabergé's sculptor Boris Frödman-Cluzel to pose for the artist, who modelled them in wax. The figure of Kudinov remains at the State Pavlovsk Museum inv.
This bronze figure may have been produced as a further model, in addition to those in wax, perhaps so that the colour palette could be settled upon, bronze being easier to paint than wax. Fabergé's close affiliation with the Woerffel lapidary and bronze foundry would have easily facilitated this extra step in the process.
