The French Heritage Society recently hosted a lecture with Géza von Hapsburg, Ph.D., a world renowned expert on Fabergé, at the Piedmont Driving Club in Midtown. The society is an American nonprofit that supports the historical preservation of important buildings in France and in the United States, and proceeds from the evening supported four historic properties: three in France and one in New Orleans. Carl Fabergé’s firm created 350,000 objects including match containers, cigarette cases, objets d’art, vodka glasses and masks. But the Fabergé eggs, which were created for and collected by monarchs, may be the most famous items made. Von Hapsburg said, “Fabergé created inventive, unexpected works of art. He was about giving pleasure to people.”
