"Today, the creations of the Russian master goldsmiths are dispersed through the world. This book assembles a broad sampling of masterpieces from the great collections in the former Soviet Union and from private and public collections elsewhere. Widely separate holdings of Faberge's art, including many of the imperial eggs, are depicted here in nearly 300 full-color illustrations, a number of which are published for the very first time."--Jacket." ;
