Talented artisan, jeweller and visionary Peter Carl Fabergé (1846 – 1920) produced some of the most unique objets de luxe in history. Nominated ‘Goldsmith by special appointment to the Russian Imperial Crown” in 1885, Fabergé gave style and vigour to the final interpretation of an ancient theme inspired by works of unprecedented beauty in the Hermitage Museum. Many of his works are now in royal collections.
