Faberge -- the name conjures up images of unbelievable splendor and unimaginable opulence. Court Jeweler to the Tsars, his inspiration came from Gothic, Renaissance, French Empire, Old Russian and Far East styles. Over 150 superb full-color illustrations reveal the range of Faberge's technical brilliance. They demonstrate, from Imperial Easter Egg to humble cigarette box, why every object produced by the Faberge workshops bears the unmistakable stamp of outstanding craftsmanship.
