The Imperial Easter Eggs of

Carl Fabergé — Before the Revolution

1.30 pm, Monday 5th  June  2017.

The fifty eggs created by F abergé as Easter gifts from Russia’s last two emperors to their wives have become the most surviving symbols of the Romanov Empire: both supreme examples of the jeweller’s art and the vulgar playthings of a decadent court. Fabergé and his designers had to conform to only three rules: each year’s Easter present had to be egg-shaped, different from any predecessor, and contain some surprise to amuse or delight its recipient.The resulting ‘eggs’ demonstrated ingenuity and creativity for which there are few parallels in any other field.

Lecturer: After reading Natural Sciences at Cambridge, Tony Faber’s career has included investment banking, management consulting and five years as managing director of the publishing company founded by his grandfather, Faber and Faber, where he remains on the board. He has written two works of narrative history, Stradivarius and Fabergé’s Eggs.

Date and Time: 1.30 pm, Monday 5th  June  2017.
