Hard covered book titled FABERGE  Imperial Eggs and other Fantasies.  A Magnificently Illustrated Volume Devoted to The Jewelled Extravagances Created for the Last Czars of Russia  by Hermione Waterfield & Christopher Forbes, 1980, 143 pages.

Gem-set surprise eggs, singing gold birds hidden in jade-leafed trees, miniature paddle steamers of gilt silver, frames of crystal and fans set with diamonds and ostrich feathers - these are just a few of the dazzling fantasies created by the House of Faberge to amuse Russia's ill-fated Imperial Family in the twilight years of the Russian Empire.  In 120 brilliant four color plates this book captures all aspects of Peter Carl Faberge's incredible achievements.  All the works presented are from the collection of FORBES magazines, the most important holding of Faberge's Imperial Treasures outside the Soviet Union.  In addition, it contains an invaluable guide to other collections of Faberge open to the public and an important catalogue raisonne of the Imperial Eggs.
