Renowned art and antiques dealer A La Vieille Russie’s new location at 745 Fifth Avenue will present its inaugural exhibition May 1 through 18. The exhibit will feature 30 of Court Jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé’s works.
Fabergé’s works are returning to A La Vieille Russie after being loaned to the Royal Fabergé exhibition at Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts in England. This is the first time these Fabergé works will be shown together in the United States.
Director of A La Vieille Russie Peter Schaffer said, “We are excited to have this opportunity to show off this incredible collection and celebrate our new galleries with this exhibition of unknown and seldom-seen treasures that highlight the genius of Fabergé.”
The exhibit’s works include pieces relating to and formerly in the English Royal collection, like a gift to ballerina Anna Pavlova from Czar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra Feodorovna, a sculpture related to Charles Darwin, and a five-color gold double marriage cup.
