Doyle opens Russian Works of Art Department
Mark Moehrke, VP/Director, Russian Works of Art, Doyle.

NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle has announced the opening of a Russian Works of Art Department, further expanding the expertise of the New York-based auctioneers and appraisers. Russian Specialist Mark Moehrke, a 15-year auction veteran, has been named Vice President and Director of the Russian Works of Art Department.

Mark spent the last ten years as Vice President, Director and Head of Russian Works of Art at Christie’s, where he was responsible for a number of highly successful sales. These include the Imperial Diamond Trellis Egg (New York, private sale); an important and previously undiscovered Fabergé imperial presentation snuff box with portrait miniature (London, £937,250), which established a new World Auction Record in the category; a rare and highly important Fabergé carved carnelian figure of a gnome (New York, $1,384,000); and the collections of the descendants of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna and Grand Duke George Mikhailovich.

Mark was the Guest Curator and catalogue editor of the current exhibition Unknown Fabergé: New Finds and Re-Discoveries, on view through February 26, 2017 at The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This landmark exhibition showcases more than eighty exquisitely crafted objects by Fabergé, many of them previously unknown. (

Mark has served as an advisor to private collectors and institutions, assisting with new acquisitions and collections management. In early November 2016, he was a featured presenter at The Wonder of Fabergé: A Study of the McFerrin Collection at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

In 2001, Mark began his auction career at Doyle, first assisting the firm’s global clientele of buyers in all categories, and later as a Furniture and Decorative Arts Appraiser cataloguing collections and conducting estate appraisals.

Mark graduated with a B.A. from Marquette University and received his M.Phil., jointly granted by the University of Glasgow and Christie's Education in London.

Mark is currently evaluating Russian Works of Art for upcoming auctions at Doyle. He may be reached at 212-427-4141, ext 272 or
