Fabergé

Works of art by Fabergé date back to the turn of the twentieth century, when the firm founded by Gustav Fabergé in Saint Petersburg was one of the jewels of the Russian Empire known and sought for around the world. After the Goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown was commissioned by Tsar Alexander III to make an Easter egg as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria Feodorovna, the House of Fabergé created over 50 jewelled eggs.

Producing a full range of jewellery and other objets d’art, quality of which was approved by Carl Fabergé, the company won international awards and became Russia’s largest jewellery firm with 500 craftsmen and designers.

Exhibited at Bentley & Skinner are fine jewellery made between circa 1895 and 1917 by Fabergé workmasters Michael Perchin, Henrik Wigström, Feodor Afanassiev, August Frederik Hollming, Johan Viktor Aarne, Erik August Kollin, Edward Schramm, August Wilhelm Holmström, and Albert Woldemar Holmström.
