Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution



This sell-out exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, conceived and curated by our own Kieran McCarthy, explores master goldsmith Carl Fabergé – whose internationally recognised firm symbolised Russian craftsmanship, luxury and elegance – and the Anglo-Russian relationship which saw the opening of a London branch in 1903.


Open until 8th May, 2022
