The purpose of this charming book is to take readers on a visual treasure hunt, letting them explore Peter Carl Faberge's imperial Easter gifts -- to feel the cool, self-assured enamel surfaces, to scrutinize the intricacies of the delicate metalwork, to count the rose-cut diamonds or cabochon rubies or seed pearls scattered like grace notes across the rounded, substantial forms. The works illustrated are drawn from the largest and best-known collection of Faberge and related Russian decorative arts outside Russia. Exciting new photographs bring to life some of the easily missed design details orchestrated by Faberge and his workers into such memorable objects of desire.

This is the story of Fabergé's Imperial Easter eggs – of their maker, of the tsars who commissioned them, of the middlemen who sold them and of the collectors who fell in love with them. It's a story of meticulous craftsmanship and unimaginable wealth, of lucky escapes and mysterious disappearances, and ultimately of greed, tragedy and devotion. Moreover, it is a story that mirrors the history of twentieth-century Russia – a satisfying arc that sees eggs made for the tsars, sold by Stalin, bought by Americans and now, finally, returned to post-communist Russia. There is also an intriguing element of mystery surrounding the masterpieces. Of the fifty 'Tsar Imperial' eggs known to have been made, eight are currently unaccounted for, providing endless scope for speculation and forgeries. This is the first book to tell the complete history of the eggs, encompassing the love and opulence in which they were conceived, the war and revolution that scattered them, and the collectors who preserved them.

In 1898, the youngest daughter of a Scottish retired admiral and MP emerged from obscurity to become the publicly acknowledged mistress of the portly, fun-loving Prince of Wales, later crowned Edward VII. Hailed as one of the beauties of the naughty nineties, Alice Keppel became a leader of the fashionable set, and as The Hon. Mrs George Keppel was one of the best-known society hostesses of the Edwardian era. The author of this study tells Alice's story against the backdrop of tempestuous world events, a racy royal court and an age of aristocratic adultery and mindless pleasure-seeking. The result is a portrait of a woman who loved, and was loved by, the king.
