Bruce Museum to crack open the history of Fabergé eggs

The story of the famed Fabergé eggs will be explained on Tuesday, May 7 at 1:30 p.m. at the Bruce Museum.

Scott Ruby, curator of Russian and European art at the Hillwood Estate, Museum, & Gardens, Washington, D.C., will discuss the development and intricate beauty of the celebrated eggs, created for the Russian Imperial family between 1885 and 1916.

Crafted from precious metals and gemstones, the lavish designs are considered masterpieces of the jeweler’s art.

The lecture is free to museum members and $5 at the door for non members. Reservations are recommended by calling the museum at 203-869-0376 or e-mailing your name, number of guests and dates to [email protected]

This is the first in a series of lectures on the topic “Incredible Eggs,” held in conjunction with the Bruce Museum’s Eggs-hibition: Unscrambling Their History.

The series continues on June 4, when artist, author and lecturer Sofika Zielyk presents History of the Pysanky Egg,] focusing on the history, symbolism, myth and legends of this unique art form, tracing its roots from paganism to Christianity to the present.
