Fabergé was the largest jewellery enterprise in Russia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with branches in Moscow, Odessa, Kiev and also London. The business manufactured a huge amount of various goods from jewellery and articles of precious stone to cutlery and silver utensils. There were unique works of art, never repeated, as well as products tailored for a wide range of clients amongst the items produced by the firm. However, it is the Easter eggs containing surprises made to order for the Russian emperors Alexander III and Nicholas II that brought fame and worldwide recognition to Fabergé.
