Summary:
The firm of Fabergé, jeweller to the Russian court, was founded in St. Petersburg in 1842. Expanded by the founder?s son, Peter Carl Fabergé (1846?1920), the firm became one of the most famous jewellers of the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Major American collectors, such as Marjorie Merriweather Post, played a significant role in Fabergé?s fame after the fall of the imperial regime, and her mansion at Hillwood in Washington, DC now has a collection that includes two imperial Easter eggs, silver, jewellery, hardstone, and religious items.0With new photography, exquisite works of art and illuminating focus spreads by Fabergé experts, this new volume presents the firm in the broader history of nineteenth to twentieth century jewellery and goldsmithing, and documents new attributions and provenances.00Exhibition: Hillwood Estate Museum & Gardens, Washington DC, USA (09.06.-31.12.2018).
