Join Kieran McCarthy, joint-managing director of Wartski and curator of the sell-out Victoria & Albert Museum exhibition Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution, as he presents a talk about Fabergé’s work and influence in London.
This is a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the Anglo-Russian relationship which saw the opening of a London Fabergé branch in 1903.
