The author is the world's leading expert on Faberge'. For Faberge', gold was never just gold - it could be red or white or green - which delightful effects were created by contrasting the colors. Their work also included enameling and lapidary, not just for the Russian, but European and Far Eastern royal families. Not held back by technical or financial limitations, Faberge' was given free reign. His masterpieces include carvings of animals and flowers, boxes of every shape, jewels, picture frames and the famous Russian Imperial Easter Eggs given to the Tsarina by the Tsar from 1884 to 1917. The finest eggs are among the hundreds of pieces illustrated in this book, celebrating Faberge's achievements in the finest color plates ever published of his work. The binding is brown with gilt lettering; the pictorial jacket shows two magnificent pieces. Includes a chronology, bibliography and index.
