Postcard from Fabergé Exposition

It was interesting to see Fabergé’s eggs that were once made in the 19th century for Russia’s former royal family the Romanovs. Each of these eggs is extremely expensive, so they won’t go on my wishlist. Their prizes goes up to millions.

I liked the way the exhibition taking place in Montreal was installed. I walked from room to room that were designed to show different themes of Fabergé’s works.

I was somewhat surprised to see that some of the eggs work masters had a Finnish and Swedish last names.

It was refreshing to see also other objects than just eggs. For example, seeing pictures of Alexander III and Nicholas II and watching a clip of the movie Battleship Potemkin (1925) next to the World War I Dish from 1914.
