Ross, Marvin C.
The Art of Karl Faberge and His Contemporaries, Russian Imperial Portraits and Mementoes, Imperial Decorations and Watches -The Collections of Marjorie Merriweather Post.

Norman University of Oklahoma Press: 1965.

"The collections of Marjorie Merriweather Post are among the most important ever assembled. This book deals mainly with Karl Faberge and his contemporary goldsmiths and silversmiths. Also represented are Russian imperial mementoes and portraits, and decorations and watches. Mrs. Post acquired her first Faberge object in 1927, and in 1931 her daughter gave her Faberge's imperial "Pink Egg" made in 1914. Her great interest in and systematic study of these art objects were given full expression during an extended stay in Russia, from 1936 to 1938". An important catalog for the Faberge lover, and a small but fierce book.

Hardcover. 6.5"x9.5", 238 pages, color and b/w illustrations, dj. Light soil, jacket rubbed.
