Jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé’s most famous works were exquisite Easter eggs, enameled and decorated with pearls and gems. The Russian czars and St. Petersburg’s elite were fond of giving them as gifts. For decades after the Revolution, however, there were no eggs to be found in the city until Malcolm Forbes sold his collection to the Link of Times Foundation. The collection became the basis of the Fabergé Museum which opened in 2014. The eggs and other works from czarist Russia are on display here at the restored Shuvalov Palace on the Fontanka Embankment.
