Description

A good, tidy copy of "Peter Carl Fabergé ~ Goldsmith and Jeweller to the Russian Court ~ His Life and Work", by Henry Charles Bainbridge, first published in 1949 by B.T. Batsford of London, this edition issued by Spring Books of London in 1966. Once goldsmiths and jewellers to the courts of Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II, and creators of exquisite objects for royal and wealthy patrons throughout Europe, the famous Fabergé products, relics of a now vanished age, are now scattered through the world's museums and private collections.They possess immediately recognisable qualities - imagination, unerring taste, and perfection both in design and execution. This pride in superb craftsmanship was what made Peter Carl Fabergé unique. Nobody has been better equipped to reveal the background and rise to fame of this extra-ordinary man than the late H.C. Bainbridge, friend of his early years in St. Petersburg, and later manager of his London branch in Dover Street. Hard covers, large format, fine black and white and full colour illustrations, original dust jacket.
