The Fabergé Style

Beautiful things are always copied, this is particularly true for the Fabergé Eggs. Eggs in the style of Fabergé are available in all sorts and colours, some more beautiful than the others. Some cost about ten Euros, others more than a thousand. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and tastes differ. But be aware that one can never buy a real original old Fabergé Egg through Internet! If you do want to buy real Fabergé, go to a well-known and distinguished dealer and read this article!

Fabergé style

This miniature drinking vessel is reminiscent of the products of the Fabergé company or some of the great jeweler's contemporaries. It reflects the fashion in the second half of the 19th century for the use of natural motifs in artistic metal items. Exquisite articles like this adorned the daily lives of people of that era and make an excellent gift for our own times.

Fabergé style

This candlestick is reminiscent of products of the celebrated Fabergé company. It combines elegant form with decoration in the style of Louis XVI. The company developed its own distinctive idiom based on historical styles enriched by Russian feeling, as well as refined taste and virtuoso execution. A Russian note is introduced into the decoration by bright malachite applied in the Russian mosaic technique.
