Description of the House of Faberge

House of Faberge was the headquarters for famous family of jewelry makers of Faberge. Original house of Faberje was established in 1840 in a house just down the street at Bolshaya Morskaya Ulitsa 16- 18. Faberge or Faberje were  descendants of French Huguenots (French Protestants) that left their homeland in France to escape persecutions by Roman Catholics. In Russia they established a dynasty that created intricate jewelry  and exquisitely crafted objets d'art. Faberge Easter eggs became particularly famous and popular at the Russian Royal court and World wide. In 1900 Faberge company moved to a new house with a number 24. This much larger house was designed by Karl Schimdt and remained in the possession of the family until the Russian Revolution.
