As official goldsmith to the Imperial Court of Russia, Peter Carl Fabergé enjoyed access to the Hermitage collection, which allowed him to develop a unique style for the pieces he produced, which ranged from jewellery to automata that fused art with technology. Fabergé’s unique series of exquisite Imperial Easter Eggs have since become a byword for the house. When the Russian revolution brought an abrupt end to the Romanov dynasty and Fabergé was nationalized, Peter Carl Fabergé and his family were forced to flee Russia. On Peter Carl Fabergé’s death, the family’s heirs lost their rights to the Fabergé name in the 1950s. In 2007, however, Pallinghurst acquired Fabergé and re-established the link with the Fabergé family inheritor, paving the way for a complete revitalization of the Fabergé brand by continuing the philosophy followed by Peter Carl Fabergé of working with master craftsmen.
