Opulence and Beauty

The House of Fabergé (1842 – 1918) produced iconic items from jewellery to the renown imperial Easter Eggs associated with the last two tsars of Russia. These decorative objects are beyond beauty with incredible craftsmanship and stories closely associated with Tsar Nicholas II and his consort Alexandra Feodorovna, The custom of presenting the Easter Eggs commenced with his father, Alexander III, in 1885, and Nicholas II presented both his mother and his wife an Easter egg each year from 1895 to 1916. This lecture will look at many items from the House of Fabergé, and where to view them today.
