The exhibition Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution explores the legacy of master goldsmith Peter Carl Fabergé, whose internationally recognised firm symbolised Russian craftsmanship, luxury and elegance, and the Anglo-Russian relationship which saw the opening of a London branch in 1903.

 

The egg depicted on this domed resin magnet is one of the most extraordinary of Fabergé’s Imperial Easter eggs. Its intricate mesh is fitted with tiny diamonds, rubies, topaz, sapphires, garnets, pearls and emeralds. The designer, Alma Theresia Pihl, was inspired to produce this motif when one evening she watched her mother-in-law doing her needlework, which shimmered in the light of the fire. The egg was bought by King George V in 1933, probably for Queen Mary’s birthday and is held in the Royal Collection.
