Published to accompany the exhibition titled, Faberge in London: Romance to Revolution. Publisher's description: The name Faberge has long been a byword for luxury. Combining an entrepreneurial vision for craftsmanship with innovative material sourcing and technical ability, Carl Faberge created an astonishing array of bespoke jeweled and enameled objects at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. This beautifully illustrated book explores the history and legacy of the House of Faberge, from its origins in Russia—and its role in the glamorous world of the Romanovs—to global recognition. Much of the story is familiar, but less well–known is the important part played by the London branch. Opened in 1903, and the only one outside Russia, it became a choice destination for Edwardian high society and an international clientele. Featuring more than 120 pieces, from delicate flowers to Imperial Easter eggs, and with contributions from leading experts, Faberge: A Russian Love Affair celebrates the enduring fascination with this master craftsman’s works.
