Harper College: The 33 Million Dollar Faberge Egg
In 1885 the jewelry house of Peter Carl Fabergé began what would become the ultimate last great commission of “objets d’art” in the world, The Imperial Easter Eggs. Fabergé received the coveted title, ‘Goldsmith by Special Appointment to the Imperial Crown’ and began the remarkable collection of treasures forever associated with the tragic end of the Russian Imperial family, the Romanovs. However, through photographs and the astonishing Easter Eggs, we get a glimpse of who the Romanovs were as a people and how they lived. Instructor Ann Leslie will delight you and provide secrets of the past in this exciting and mysterious story.
