Summary

This full-color catalog covers the extraordinary range of objects produced by the great Russian self-described "artist-jeweler" Peter Carl Faberg√¬© (1846-1920). Smoker's accessories, photograph frames, clocks, desk pieces, boxes, cases, cabinet objects, jewels and costume accessories, table silver, hardstone animals, flowers, and Easter eggs appear in lustrous full-color photographs. All of these pictured are part of the Hodges Family Collection of masterworks by Faberg√¬©, which is the first significant American group of Faberg√¬© works assembled in decades. The Hodges Collection's inclusion of work by all of the workmasters and outside suppliers of the Faberg√¬© firm further raises its significance. The collection is on extended loan to the New Orleans Museum of Art.Written by the museum's curator of decorative arts and recognized Faberg√¬© authority, John Webster Keefe, the book includes valuable essays by collector Daniel L. Hodges; by preeminent Faberg√¬© scholar Dr. G√¬©za von Habsburg discussing the astonishing rise of the Faberg√¬© market; by Kieran McCarthy, specialist in Faberg√¬©'s work in wood; and by prominent Faberg√¬© bibliographer Christel L. McCanless. A chronology for the House of Faberg√¬© from 1814 to 2007 is also included. Each piece in the Hodges Family Collection is illustrated in color and accompanied by a full description, an essay on its place in the Faberg√¬© oeuvre, its relevant history, its provenance, and its specific bibliography.
