On September 12, jewelry dealer and Russian specialist Marie Betteley introduced her forthcoming book Beyond Fabergé, Imperial Russian Jewelry, set to be released in October 2020.
A lavishly illustrated systematic survey of all the leading jewelers and silver masters of Imperial Russia, Beyond Fabergé promises to be an indispensable reference on the Russian jewelry arts. This lecture considered the dazzling narratives of numerous masterworks and firms (including names such as Pauzié, Bolin, Hahn, Koechli, Seftigen, Marshak, Morozov, Nicholls & Plincke, Grachev, Sazikov, and others) as it traversed through a stunning display of Imperial era treasures.
The lecture was part of the Russian History Museum’s Second Saturday lecture series. This program is funded in part by a Humanities New York CARES Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act.
