Over the last several months I’ve picked up various books on the history of Carl Faberge and his Imperial eggs. It was a lovely surprise to hop on google today and see this lovely tribute for his 166 birthday. (happy birthday Karl)
If you’re interested in reading more about Faberge, these are my favorites.
Faberge’s Eggs: The Extraordinary Story of the Masterpieces That Outlived an Empire
This book reads like a novel, detailing the history of the jeweled eggs and who they were made for as gifts. It was hard to put down.
These 3 books are great eye candy with close-ups of the eggs and the “surprise” inside.
