Oklahoma City Museum of Art

Oklahoma City, OK  73102
Information: 405/236-3100

Fabergé: Jeweler to the Tsars features 231 exquisite items created by the workshops of the Russian master, Peter Carl Fabergé. This collection from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is considered to be the finest assemblage of Fabergé objects outside Russia. The exhibit explores themes of luxury, innovation, entrepreneurship, and imperial patronage, and it provides insights into Faberge's life, business, and legacy.

Peter Carl Fabergé was the last official imperial jeweler of the Tsars in the waning days of the Russian Empire. Known internationally as an extraordinary artist and gift-maker to the world's nobility, Fabergé was famed for his creations' extravagance, intricacy, and luxury. The exhibit includes four eggs created for the imperial Romanov family as well as an array of enameled picture frames and clocks, gold cigarette cases, parasol handles, precious stone animals, flowers in rock crystal vases, Byzantine-influenced icons, and jewel-encrusted brooches and boxes.
