The firm, The House of Peter Carl Faberge in St Peterburg, Russia was known for wonderful items of jewelry but also exquisite items for the desk and home. It boasted a royal clientele list, especially the Czars Alexander 111 and later, Nicholas 11.
The workshops of skilled craftsmen were employed to make what is now considered the Faberge claim to fame, the EGGS.
Based upon the custom and style of decorating Easter Eggs, his company used precious metals and gemstones rather than the more usual materials.
The workshop of Henrik Wigstrom used enamel, gold and diamonds to create
The Trellis Egg in 1907.
Michael Perchin's workshop used
enamel, gold and pearls to create the
Gatchina Palace Egg in1902.
