However no man is an island. Without a host of creative talents behind the scenes - designers, master goldsmiths and silversmiths - Carl Faberge's business could not have flourished. Faberge: His Masters and Artisans lifts these craftsmen into the limelight; craftsmen who not only deserve our closer attention, but the captivating stories of their lives and careers add appreciably to what is known of the working processes at Faberge. Featured here are names - familiar from the maker's marks on countless Faberge treasures - of men such as Erik Kollin, August Holmstroem, Henrik Wigstroem, Viktor Aarne, Gabriel Nykanen, and many others. The book also explores jewellery manufacturing methods, touches on the company's wellknown and influential customers, as well as, of course, showcasing Faberge's very recognisable style and creativity. It contains much new information, including reminiscences, letters, and personal photographs alongside detailed images of Faberge works.
