Description
The most complete reference available on Faberg eggs, the Encyclopedia is the only work of its kind. Lavishly illustrated with beautiful four-color photos. - The introductory essay is the first ever to outline the personal relationships between the Russian Imperial Court Jeweler, Peter Carl Faberg (1846-1920), and the two women he served, the Tsarina Alexandra and her mother-in-law, the Dowager Empress Marie. - The second essay traces the Imperial Easter eggs after the fall of the Romanov dynasty. - The main part of the book provides comprehensive information about 66 Faberg eggs, including the names of the work master and his assistants (where known), the marks, materials used, dimensions, technical descriptions, background notes, provenance detail, all known public exhibitions, and extensive reference citations. The citations cover materials in English, Russian, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Finnish, and are arranged by types of publication. - The "Who's Who" section profiles over 500 artisans and companies who worked for, or with, Faberg . It includes work master marks and important new archival material. - Appendix I details 16 Faberg egg auctions. Appendix II (Exhibitions, 1900-1997) describes over 100 Faberg exhibitions worldwide. - A glossary completes the volume. Not just an elegant volume about objets d'art or unequaled majesty, the Encyclopedia is the premier reference work on the subject, compiled by the world's leading experts. Essential for all fine arts and museum libraries; will also be of interest to academic and public libraries, collectors and dealers.
