BOOK DESCRIPTION

Contains 460 Illustrations, 360 in Full Colour!

This splendidly illustrated volume is the catalog of the most comprehensive exhibition of Faberge eggs, jewelry, and art objects ever assembled. Including dozens of fabulous items never before seen by the public, it illuminates the legacy of Carl Faberge (1846-1920), Imperial Jeweler to the Russian court.

This fabulous volume, the most comprehensive work to date on the artistry of Carl Faberge and his legacy to European culture from the 1870s until 1917, was compiled as a catalog for a traveling exhibition, which originated at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.

General chapters discuss Faberge's life, the House of Faberge, and the operation of workshops in St. Petersburg and Moscow as well as the branches in London and Paris. More specialized sections focus on the world-renowned Imperial Easter Egg Collection, Faberge's participation in the 1900 Exposition Universalle in Paris, and personal drawings by the master himself.

The real star of the book, however, is the beautifully illustrated "Catalogue of Works," which arranges objects by immediate family members, relatives, historic events, workmasters, workshops, and branch locations. This work expands our knowledge of Faberge and complements other noteworthy volumes, including Faberge and the Russian Master Goldsmiths.
