Fabergé style in a large exhibition near Moscow. Here are the preview images ♦ ︎
There are excellent jewelers. There are also great jewelers. A step above there are the jewelers who made history. And then there is Fabergé. Mythical, almost mysterious, with a contested legacy that has come to this day. The museum and exhibition center La Nuova Gerusalemme of Istra (near Moscow) dedicates a great exhibition to this tutelary jeweler: The Fabergé style. Timeless excellence.
The exhibition will present over 400 pieces, many of which have never been exposed to the public.
To the lucky ones who can visit the exhibition are proposed the works of the Fabergé jewelry house from the collections of Russian and foreign museums: the Fabergé Museum in Baden-Baden (Germany), the State Hermitage Museum (Russia, St. Petersburg) and others.
The exhibition not only includes individual objects, but also tells the story of the development of the Casa Di Fabergé, with rare documents that mark the important phases in the history of the brand.
says the exhibition’s curator, professor, founder of the first private museum in Russia (The National Museum of Russia) and the Fabergé Museum in Baden-Baden (Germany), Alexander Ivanov. There are also crystal utensils, gifts and furnishing products. Furthermore, a comparison of the work of master goldsmiths from various branches of the company in Saint Petersburg and Moscow is presented. And there are the famous imperial easter eggs, the objects from the study of His Imperial Majesty, the accessories of the members of the imperial family.
Among the main exhibits there is the imperial Easter egg of Karelian birch (1917), the last Easter egg, produced and given to the imperial family by the Fabergé company; the Easter imperial egg “The constellation of zarevic Aleksej” (1917), intended as a gift to the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna for Easter 1917; the “Farfalla” brooch (1896), donated by Emperor Nicholas II to the actress M.
