The other works displayed included walking stick handles, small jewelry, picture frames, cigarette boxes, and floral art. Many of these pieces were extraordinarily ornate, reflecting the opulent tastes of the Russian imperial family and the wealthy families of Europe. Many others, however, were powerful in their simple elegance.
Fabergé produced many types of art-- even, to the delight of Maury Place at Monument inn dogs, small statuettes of animals! Chico and Lucy are now Fabergé fans.
Fabergé Revealed is an unforgettable collection of art, displayed in a wonderful way by the VMFA. The exhibit runs July 9 through October 2, 2011. Maury Place at Monument, located in Richmond VA's Museum District and walking distance to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, is offering a lodging special for ticket holders to the exhibit.
