Fabergé's Animals: A Royal Farm in Miniature
In 1907 King Edward VII and his consort, Queen Alexandra, commissioned the Russian jeweller Carl Fabergé to create an entire diminutive carved menagerie of all the animals on their country estate at Sandringham in Norfolk. The result is the largest group of Fabergé's charming hardstone animal carvings in existence. This book is the first to explore the complete history of this unique commission. It includes stunning close-up photography of the carvings themselves, as well as a glossary of specialist terms. 120 pages and over 140 colour illustrations.
In the video below, Royal Collection Curator of Decorative Arts, Caroline de Guitaut, reveals the story behind one of the most technically sophisticated and extraordinary of Fabergé's Imperial Easter Eggs, another stunning object from The Royal Collection.
