It tells in a way or another the story of jeweler and goldsmith Carl Fabergé and his firm, renowned for creating the most refined objects of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries for the nobility and aristocracy of imperial Russia. In addition, it highlights the jeweler’s exquisite art and incredible craftsmanship through creations of impeccable beauty.

However, this book showcases all-new photography of this precious collection, alongside stunning images of the Shuvalov Palace – which makes it a must-have volume that celebrates beauty, craftsmanship and heritage.
