Book Description: Fifth Avenue in New York houses many treats,
but one of its more sumptuous offerings is a gem of a museum - the Forbes

is a treasure trove of artistic and historical masterpieces.
One hundred and twenty pieces from the Forbes Faberge collection are
pictured here, each accompanied by a detailed essay on its significance
and history and the artisans who created it. Printed on elegant paper and
accompanied by 26 tip-ins, this volume also features genealogies of the
European royal families who commissioned most of these pieces.

The World of Faberge
by Geza Von Habsburg (Editor), Robbie Mahoney (Designer)
Book Description: The World of Faberge accompanies one of the
most ambitious exhibitions ever mounted on the jewelers of the Russian
Imperial Court. With over 750 treasures by Faberge and other world-famous
jewelers and goldsmiths, all illustrated in full color, The World of Faberge
brings together the famous collections from the Kremlin Museum in Moscow,
the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, as well as the Forbes Collection and numerous
private European and American collections.
For the first time, this book places the phenomenon of Faberge in its
wider context. It focuses on its origins and sources, reveals aspects of
the famous jewelers that have hitherto never properly been explored, and
makes comparisons not only with Faberge's Russian competitors, but also
with its foreign peers such as Cartier, Lalique and Tiffany.
Contributions by many leading Faberge specialists explore the significance
and enduring legacy of this world of Faberge Published to coincide with
a major exhibition in the United States
