Art History

In 1872, a twenty-six-year-old Peter Carl Faberg (Russian, 18461920) took over his fathers jewelry business in St. Petersburg, Russia. With the help of his brother Agathon, he cultivated the patronage of the last two czars of the Romanov dynasty and the elite of Edwardian society. Throughout the course of his prolific career, he revolutionized the way jewelry was evaluated in Russian society by emphasizing design creativity and workmanship over the use of precious stones and metals.
