DESCRIPTION

Exquisitely crafted and unsurpassed in artistry, the imaginative designs of Peter Carl Fabergé were dearly cherished by the sisters Queen Alexandra of Denmark and Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia who, through their shared patronage and positions in the British and Russian royal families, extended the Russian jeweller and goldsmith’s renown throughout Europe’s most fashionable homes.

Royal Fabergé showcases one hundred of Fabergé’s exquisite creations—including examples that have never before been published—from the stunning collection amassed by six generations of the British royal family. Taking the forms of imperial Easter eggs, dazzling jewel-encrusted boxes, and diamond- and ruby-adorned hardstone carvings of pets, these outstanding examples of Fabergé’s unrivaled craftsmanship were exchanged between members of the royal family for anniversaries and birthdays, as well as at Christmas. Together they bear witness to both the discerning tastes of their collectors and the close ties among the British, Russian, and Danish royal families.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 stunning, full-color photographs, Royal Fabergé is the first publication exploring Fabergé’s works from the standpoint of royal patronage and gift-giving. This volume makes extensive use of materials from both the Royal Archives and Fabergé’s own accounts to detail one of the finest collections of Fabergé’s work in existence.
