Publication Date 1 Jan 2011
OverviewCarl Faberges popularity with the two Danish princesses Alexandra and her sister Dagmar, and their respective marriages into the English and Russian royal families, brought Faberges works to the notice of royalty across Europe, with the patronage of Alexandras husband, King Edward VII, eclipsing even that of his wife. Faberges exquisite miniature models and hardstone carvings embellished with rubies, diamonds and gold were exchanged between the royal families of Europe and beyond for birthdays and anniversaries, as well as Christmas gifts. This new publication looks at 100 examples of Faberges masterpieces across six generations of the British royal family, from Queen Victoria to the present day, and examines their tastes as patrons and collectors of these fascinating works. It includes examples from their personal collections, some of which have never been published before, as well as material from the Royal Archives and Faberges own workshop accounts.
