Rebuilding the Fabergé Legacy
In 1900, the Fabergé maison was at the height of its success.
Founded in 1842, the brand had grown from a humble basement-level storefront into Russia’s largest jeweler. Fabergé’s namesake owner Peter Carl Fabergé was regularly commissioned by Europe’s royal families and received countless accolades for his dazzling jewelry designs including the State Emblem at the Pan-Russian Exhibition and a gold medal at the World Exhibition in Paris. Fabergé was even appointed a Knight of the Legion of Honour in France.
And most famously, Fabergé had the honor of presenting his spectacularly ornate and much-anticipated Imperial Eggs, annual gifts to the tsars and tsarinas of Russia. This Eastertime tradition was a breathtaking showcase of Fabergé’s ingenuity and unrivaled skill as a jeweler.
