Monday 13th April - The Imperial Easter Eggs of Carl Fabergé
12pm - 3pm

We welcome Toby Faber who has written two works of narrative history on Stradivarius and Fabergé’s Eggs, and has also given many lectures on these two subjects. Between 1885 and 1916, Carl Fabergé made fifty jewelled eggs – Easter presents from Russia’s last two emperors to their wives, which have become the most famous surviving symbols of the Romanov Empire. Toby will talk about and explore the connection between the three rules Fabergé had to conform to when designing the eggs, and how the eggs also reflected Fabergé’s own perspective on the lives of the Tsarinas who were to receive them.
