Fabergé from the Hodges Family Collection

Friday, May 4, 2012 - Saturday, January 19, 2013

The Taubman is proud to present the first major exhibition of Fabergé objects to be shown in western Virginia. Featuring more than 100 objects made by the renowned House of Fabergé, led by Russian artist-jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé (1846–1920), all works are from the Hodges Family Collection, assembled by American collector Daniel L. Hodges. Objects range from photograph frames, tableware, desk accessories, boxes, clocks, and jewelry to cigarette cases and smoking accessories. All of the works illustrate the consummate skill of the House of Fabergé and its inimitable use of precious and semi-precious materials to create luxury objects of the highest order.
