Marvel at the decadent creations of master goldsmith, Carl Fabergé.

This exhibition explores the vision, talent and craftsmanship of the Fabergé firm who became an internationally recognised jewellers in 19th-century Russia, as well as the Anglo-Russian relationship that inspired the opening of their London branch in 1903.

Among other things, Fabergé are particularly known for their extravagant jewel-encrusted eggs, many of which were made for Russian Tsars. Highlights in the exhibition include The Alexander Palace Egg (1908) and the Romanov Tercentenary Egg (1913). With just a small selection of eggs being made and few remaining today, they are a highly desired collector’s items and a symbol of wealth and decadence.

Other objects in the exhibition include a decorated cigarette case, an ‘ice crystal’ pendant and many more intricately decorated items.
