From St Petersburg, all the way to Texas, few will want to miss Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision, a new retrospective of Fabergé gems now on display at the Houston Museum of Natural History. And while Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision may be making its museum debut a million miles from the noble surroundings of a Russian palace, this private, lovingly curated collection from Arthur and Dorothy McFerrin, couldn’t reflect the Fabergé house heritage any better.
Come & Meet Tatiana Fabergé at Binns in Williamsburg, VA. On February 2nd, 2013 at 11AM, Binns of Williamsburg, exclusive North American distributor of Tatiana Fabergé's newly launched book - Faberge: A Comprehensive Reference Book, is hosting a much-anticipated lecture and book signing with Tatiana Fabergé, Great-Granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé.
Simply hearing the name Fabergé evokes the splendor and extravagance of late 19th and early 20th century Imperial Russia. The House of Fabergé designed the renowned Imperial Easter Eggs for the Romanov family, as well as an array of objets d’art, luxurious gifts, and practical items for the wealthy patrons of Europe.
Visitors can glimpse this grandeur in a special exhibition, Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision, from the McFerrin Collection and hear from more than half a dozen internationally-recognized experts, including Tatiana Fabergé, great-granddaughter of Carl Fabergé, during a special one-day symposium in advance, Jan. 31. The exhibition opens to the public Feb. 1.
