Faberge Rediscovered

Серия: "-"

The firm of Faberg&# 233;, jeweler to the Russian court, was founded in St. Petersburg in 1842. Expanded by the founder's son, Peter Carl Faberg&# 233; (1846-1920), the firm became one of the most famous jewelers of the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries. Major American collectors, such as Marjorie Merriweather Post, played a significant role in Faberg&# 233;'s success after the fall of the imperial regime, and her mansion at Hillwood in Washington, DC now has a collection of about ninety pieces, including two imperial Easter eggs, various works of art of imperial provenance, silver, jewelry, hardstone, and religious items. Recent research on Faberg&# 233;, revelations from the Russian public archives, and the discovery of objects thought to be lost have brought to light new information about Faberg&# 233;'s career and his creations, including material on several of Hillwood's Faberg&# 233; items. With fabulous new photography, exquisite works of art, and illuminating focus spreads by Faberg&# 233; experts, this new volume presents the firm in the broader history of nineteenth to twentieth century jewelry and goldsmithing, documents new attributions and provenances, and examines our continuing fascination with Faberg&# 233;'s remarkable work.
