Fabergé

The "Regal Splendor" exhibit at the Reagan Presidential Library featured the Forbes Fabergé egg and jewelry collection. The presentation included the history of the House of Fabergé and the Romanov family.

Although the Imperial Easter egg collection commissioned by the last of the Russian Czars is the most celebrated, other Fabergé masterworks were displayed including; the Anniversary Heart Memento, the Imperial fleur-de-lys clock, the Nobel Necklace/Bracelet, the Ice Pendant and the Moon Clock.

The exhibit explored the significance of these miniature masterworks beyond their sheer beauty and workmanship. The exhibit also included insights into late Imperial Russian politics, touching glimpses into the private lives of the family of the last "Czar and Autocrat of All the Russias."
