Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision
Now Showing!
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 of Fabergé from the McFerrin Collection. Featuring more than 350 objects, highlights include 2 Fabergé eggs recently added to the collection—the breathtaking Diamond Trellis Imperial Egg and one of the celebrated Kelch Eggs.
The exhibition includes past favorites such as the famed Nobel Ice Egg, the dazzling Empress Josephine Tiara, and the ornate Fire Screen Frame, a gift from Tsar Nicholas II to his mother, Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. New additions to the collection include several important Imperial presentation boxes and other objets de luxe.
In recent years, the McFerrin Collection has become one of the world’s most significant private Fabergé collections. Tatiana Fabergé, the great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, calls it “one of those rare gems” in the upcoming book From a Snowflake to an Iceberg, which will accompany the exhibition.
“The McFerrin Collection on extended loan will bring such pleasure to the many visitors, both young and old, who again will have the opportunity to dream and imagine the glory of the past,” Fabergé writes. “This will both educate and enrich the art experience of the American public and allow them to be captivated by the magic of the Fabergé genius so that they can perhaps understand just a little of what has drawn the McFerrins to create such an outstanding collection.”
Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision is organized by the Houston Museum of Natural Science with the McFerrin Collection..

  1. Thank You for this great post.

    Fabergé was big master. Many years ago we had in Finland exhibition of Fabergé. Photographing was permitted, but not publishing photos, so I never could show what I saw.

    Did You knew that Fabergé had many Finnish workmasters also? One of them was:

    Erik August Kollin.

    Me encanta que publiques en español también.

    • Gracias por tu interesante y agradable comentario. no sabía nombres de los artesanos de Fabergé. Voy a investigar sobre Erik para publicar otro día acerca de él. Que pena que a veces no nos es permitido fotografiar o publicar las fotos de alguna exhibición, me pasó lo mismo que a ti cuando fui a una muestra de Bulgari. Sabemos que lo hacen por razones de seguridad y nimodo, acatar. Mi idioma es el español pues soy de México, pero también publico en inglés porque convivo con mucho estadounidense en San Miguel de Allende. Además así puedo traspasar fronteras.
      Nuevamente gracias por estar en contacto
