Description

The Museums winsome sea lion is based on an original animal figure (ca. 19001917) from the House of Faberg in the British Royal Collection. Peter Carl Fabergs (Russian, 18461920) studios produced a wide variety of objets dart, including an exceptional assortment of carved hard-stone animals. Translating the typical characteristics of an animal into stone to capture its personality was of primary concern to Fabergs sculptors; thus each carved creature displays both a freshness and an enduring charm.

Produced in cooperation with the British Royal Collection.

Fabergs studios produced a wide variety of objets dart, including jeweled Easter eggs, clocks, jewelry, boxes, frames, and fantasy objects such as small carved animals.
