DescriptionOur sophisticated pendant watch is based on an original gold and enamel miniature Fabergé egg (1896–1903) in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The ultimate achievement of the House of Fabergé is the series of jeweled Easter eggs created for Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. These delicate “works of fantasy” often memorialized important occasions in the reign of the Imperial Romanov family.

Art HistoryIn 1872, when Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920) was only twenty-six years old, he took over his father’s 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. Fabergé’s studios produced a wide variety of objets d’art, including magnificent jewelry, clocks, enamel cigarette cases, boxes, and frames.
