- Tuesday, June 18, 2013 – Faberge’ – Dr. Brenda Forman
DCGIA June Meeting Announcement - Faberge’ from the period of 1890 to 1918. While Lalique revolutionized jewelry design and made Art Nouveau jewelry a worldwide rage, even if a short-lived one, contemporary Fabergé in Russia was making jewelry and objects d’art that looked far more to the past, but whose appeal has endured to the present day, even to the point of fueling a thriving “Fauxbergé” industry.
