Experience the exquisitely crafted Fabergé treasures of the world-renowned McFerrin Collection at the Houston Museum of Natural Science through Thursday, December 31, 2015. 

With the addition of more than 150 new pieces, the new exhibition Fabergé: From A Snowflake To An Iceberg showcases 500 works from the House of Fabergé. Pieces range from the elegantly simple to breathtakingly ornate.

The House of Fabergé may be best known for its stunning Easter eggs, but its designers created jewelry, clocks, picture frames, snuff boxes, cigarette cases and much more, hundreds of which are on display, including a hand-held fan that belonged to Queen Victoria.

You’ll delve into the fascinating background of how Peter Carl Fabergé developed the iconic style and craftsmanship that won him the favor of Russia’s imperial family and the elite the world over.
