HMNS has been a whilwifnd of activity for the past few months in preparation for our new Fabergé exhibit. Regular visitors to the museum might be surprised to hear this. After all, we’ve been displaying the Dorothy and Artie McFerrin Fabergé Collection at HMNS for years. What could possibly be so different about this new, third iteration?
Well, instead of trying to explain it myself; explain the more than 100 new objects, the state-of-the-art new lighting system and digital display systems, the temporary loan from the Royal Collection Trust, I will let the creators of the exhibit regale to you stories of their trials and achievements in their own words in a small series of behind-the scenes videos.
Today we will have Caroline de Guitaut, Senior Curator at the Royal Collection Trust, discuss the English Royal Family’s ties to the House of Fabergé.
