Royalty, aristocrats, American heiresses, exiled Russian Grand Dukes, randlords, Maharajas, socialites and financiers with newly made fortunes flocked to Fabergé in London to buy gifts for each other. This book is dedicated to the glittering history of Fabergé's British branch, from its opening in 1903 to its closure in 1917. The Imperial Russian goldsmith's London branch was the only one outside of Russia and its jewelled and enamelled contents were as popular there as they were in St. Petersburg or Moscow. Using previously unreferenced sources and a newly discovered archive of papers relating to Fabergé in London, Kieran McCarthy studies the branch's structure, customers and exclusive stock, creating a tome of interest to enthusiasts of the decorative arts, the social history of the Edwardian Golden Age and especially of European Royalty.
