Royal Fabergé

For six successive generations the British Royal Family has been amassing the world's finest collection of works by that great Russian jeweller and goldsmith Peter Carl Fabergé. From 23 July to 3 October Buckingham Palace will be showing 100 of his works in a special exhibition: Royal Fabergé. The opening date marks the summer opening of Buckingham Palace. Shown is Mosaic Egg (1914) by Albert Holmström, one of the artists employed by Fabergé. This magnificent Easter egg is covered with pearls and jewels and was bought by King George V for Queen Mary.
