Jan 2015: New York Met: The fantastic Faberge Collection

then I come to something that is just amazing, the Faberge collection of eggs and other curios. Faberge was a Russian Jeweller and used to make the most amazing jewellery collection for the great and good of Russian and European society back when it was a society. When the czars roamed. (I have to tell you this joke...if the king was a Czar and the queen was a Czarina, what are the kids called? Czardines) 

the exquisite work is amazing, i fogged up the glass trying to peer closely at these amazing pieces of jewellers art.
