Faberé Eggs by Victor Mayer
Anne-Barbara Kern
Arnoldsche, 2015

Fabergé eggs are the embodiment of masterly goldsmithing and luxury gifts. These precious items, produced by Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1916 for the Russian tsar family and other buyers, still fascinate to this day through their craftsmanly precision, their valuable materials and their history. From 1990 to 2009 the Fabergé tradition was continued by the Pforzheim jewellery manufacturer Victor Mayer. As artificer of Fabergé jewellery, the company, founded in 1890, manufactured precious everyday items and the famous Fabergé egg objects using contemporary designs. Victor Mayer demonstrated traditional handcraft techniques with skill and mastery, resulting in the high quality of these historical objects. This book provides a full and richly illustrated catalogue of all the Fabergé egg objects produced in the Victor Mayer manufactory. The attention lies with the stylistic development and the iconography of the pieces, the company histories of the House of Fabergé as well as of the artificer Victor Mayer.
