Peter Carl Fabergé

Moscow: Google is celebrating 166th birthday of Peter Carl Fabergé—a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs.

Google has decorated its homepage with a set of six gold, diamonds, precious metals and gemstones decorated eggs. These eggs are commonly referred to as ‘Fabergé Eggs’or ‘Fabergé Easter Eggs’.

Fabergé was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia on May 30, 1846 to the Baltic German jeweller Gustav Fabergé and his Danish wife Charlotte Jungstedt.

His father, together with his wife and children retired to Dresden, leaving the business in the hands of capable and trusted managers in 1860.

In 1882 at Pan-Russian Exhibition in Moscow Fabergé won the gold medal. He was appointed as the court jeweller of the Romanov Dynasty in 1885.

Only 47 of out of a total of 54 Fabergé eggs are believed to have survived now.

The renowned jeweller passed away on September 24, 1920.
