Faberge Exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts

4 Dec

tumblr_mbrkt1DSnZ1qk3ttdDon’t miss the Faberge exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts. More than 200 objects are on display including the precious eggs, jewelry, boxes, figurines, parasol tops and picture frames. The audio portion is easy to follow, and the history is just as fascinating as the designs. All the objects are from the collection of Lillian Thomas Pratt of Fredricksburg, Va., who bequeathed the art to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. There’s even a Motown connection — she was the wife of John Lee Pratt, a General Motors executive. The educational programming of the exhibit is provided by the General Motors Foundation. If you can’t afford a Faberge (there’s only 42 eggs left in the world), you can always pick up a reproduction at the gift shop. Check out the gift shop reproduction below.
