Peter Carl Fabergé, also known as Karl Gustavovich Fabergé (Russian: Карл Гу́ставович Фаберже́, Karl Gustavovich Faberzhe; 30 May 1846 – 24 September 1920), was a Russian jeweller best known for the famous Fabergé eggs made in the style of genuine Easter eggs but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials. He was one of the sons of the founder of the famous jewelry legacy House of Fabergé. The House of Fabergé was founded in 1842 by Gustav Fabergé (1814-1893) in Pernau, Estonia. It blossomed under his son Carl Fabergé who took over the St. Petersburg family jewelry business in 1872. Branches in Moscow, Kiev, Odessa, and a sales-only branch in London (1903-1917) catered to elite clientele worldwide. The famous Easter eggs and decorative objects made between 1885 and 1917 are displayed in permanent and traveling museum exhibitions, are sold by reputable dealers and leading auction houses, and have been treasured by collectors for over a hundred years.
