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.
