Peter Carl Fabergé (1846-1920) is best known for the Easter eggs he began making in 1884 for the Tsar and Tsarina of Russia. After studying in several European centres, he returned to St Petersburg in 1864 and joined his father's firm. In 1872 he took over the establishment and became the Tsar's Court Goldsmith in 1885. His international reputation was secured in 1900 at the Paris Exposition and he began creating objects for Edward VII and other European royals. The firm's success continued until the 1917 Revolution when Fabergé escaped to Switzerland.
