Art History

House of Fabergé

Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846-1920) revolutionized the way jewellery was evaluated in Russian society by emphasising creativity and workmanship over the use of precious stones and metals. His studio produced a wide variety of objets d’art, including magnificent jewellery and clocks, as well as enamel cigarette cases, boxes, and frames. His ultimate achievement is a series of jewelled Easter eggs created for the Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia.

 

Description

Our charming Russian Imperial Buttercup Bee Box is adapted from Cornflowers and Buttercups, an original flower study in rock crystal, gold, enamel, and gemstones, made by Peter Carl Fabergé’s (Russian, 1846-1920) studios about 1900. This objet d’art features a bee perched atop a golden buttercup. Produced in cooperation with the British Royal Collection, and made expressly for the Metropolitan Museum in the United States.
