Fabergé’s Beautiful Creations (w/photos)
« on: March 27, 2008, 05:38:53 PM »
I didn't see another thread devoted solely to Faberge's beautiful artwork. Most of the threads were focused on the current location and survival of the eggs, exhibits, or regarded forged Fabergé pieces. I felt his work deserved a thread of its own.

This is the best all-inclusive website that I have found for the eggs.  Nearly all of them seem to be here and the photographs are just gorgeous!

While staying with my godmother in January i was lucky to see a couple of pieces of Faberge in person.  The craftsmanship was wonderful.  On was a pendant and the other was a bracelet.

As well, in topkapi palace, there is a wonder Kvosh by Faberge which is enormous.  It is probably nephrite but I am not sure.  It has a wonderfully large diamond in it.

Thank you Pippilin:  I have been working on a time line for the eggs, and I know that no one will be surprised to find out that every book I have had a different list and a different recipient for some of the eggs.'

Getting as much matching information as possible is very important to me right now.

Thank you again,
Alixz

Isn't that the truth! I was going to post a timeline, but the three books I have disagreed about the dates and the even the names of the eggs in one book.

Thank you for posting. You find the most wonderful photos and portraits! It is so unusual (to me at least) to see a photo of Rasputin in an elegant Fabergé frame. His image just seems out of place in that frame.
