The V&A Museum is set to look at the life of famous goldsmith Carl Fabergé in an exhibition dedicated to the man later this year.

Fabergé was the son of Gustav, founder of the Russian jewellery firm, the House of Fabergé, founded in 1842.

Carl brought the company to Britain, opening its first London branch in 1903.

He will now be the subject of an entire exhibition, debuting in November this year, which will also look at developments in Angl0-Russian relations that led to the Russian export coming to British shores.

The exhibition will debut 20 November, 2021, and will feature a selection of pieces from the company, as well as photos from its early days.

The V&A Museum is closed at the moment due to England’s lockdown, however.
