Fabergé Revealed will offer a rare opportunity to view a dazzling array of more than 200 elegant objects by the celebrated jeweler to Russian Tsars Alexander III and his son and successor, Nicholas II, including four Imperial Easter Eggs. Visitors will be treated to a stunning array of enameled picture frames, gold cigarette cases, hardstone animals, decorative boxes, and jewel encrusted brooches. This exhibition has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
