With over 1,000 treasures by Fabergé and other World-famous jewelers and goldsmiths, this book brings together famous works of art from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and the Kremlin Museum in Moscow, as well as the Forbes Magazine Collection, New York and numerous private American and European collections, most of which have never been exhibited in the United States. Exquiste objects including cigarette-cases, miniature animals, snuff boxes and, of course, the Imperial eggs –fashioned with technical excellence from gold, silver, precious stones and enamels – are all illustrated in full color. It focuses on its origins and sources, examines the world of the famous jewelers’ ateliers in great detail, and makes comparisons not only with Fabergé’s Russian competitors, but also with
its foreign peers such as Boucheron, Cartier, Lalique and Tiffany.
