Fabergé: Objects of Desire: A Look at the Enduring Appeal of the House of Fabergé, the Business Visionary at its Helm and the Imperial Patronage that Ensured Its Prestige
Cynthia Coleman Sparke, independent consultant, researcher, and lecturer specializing in Russian works of art

Exactly how did a modest jewelry concern with an extremely un-Russian sounding name become an enduring symbol of Romanov luxury? This talk takes us beyond the legendary Easter eggs to consider the design sources, materials and techniques that distinguished the legendary Russian firm from its contemporaries. We will look, in particular, at Fabergé gifts that were selected to convey romantic ties, filial devotion, diplomatic esteem, and even loyalty from a beloved pet.
