LONDON – Faberge in London: Romance to Revolution is the first major exhibition devoted to the international prominence of the legendary Russian goldsmith, Carl Faberge, and the importance of his little-known London branch. With a focus on Faberge’s Edwardian high society clientele, the exhibition shines a light on his triumphs in Britain as well as a global fascination with the joyful opulence of his creations.

The show is on through May 8, 2022.
