The end of the last century rediscovered this name to the пeneral public in Russia, because for many years Carl Faberge’s name, as a jeweler of the Royal Court, was forbidden:in company’sactivities were not interested, exhibits of the collections were kept in storages and never exhibited at permanent exhibitions. Not a single article was written, not a single book was published. After the collapse of the communist system, Russian society developed a great interest in the historical heritage of Imperial Russiaand its cultural traditions, terminated by the revolution. Carl Faberge, as a court jeweler, personified the Russian jewelry art of that era.His works have become highly valued on the antique market. Also a demand for Faberge-style products has arisen.
