From Imperial Russia to the present day, this exciting documentary tells the epic story of the Fabergé name, spanning 150 years of turbulent history, romance, artistic development, and commercial exploitation. Among many examples shown, 20 pieces from VMFA’s own Fabergé Collection, bequeathed by Lillian Thomas Pratt, are featured up close in brilliant high definition and given historic context. After the film, we invite you to find all 20 pieces in our newly reopened Fabergé Galleries.
