DETROIT (AP) — More than 200 objects made under the direction of Karl Faberge (FA'-buhr-zhay) are to be on display at a new art exhibition in Detroit.

Called "Faberge: The Rise and Fall," the exhibition gets under way Sunday at the Detroit Institute of Arts. It runs through Jan. 21.

Visitors can view imperial Russian treasures made by the House of Faberge, including jewel-encrusted parasol handles, enameled frames, animals carved from semi-precious stones and miniature egg pendants.

The exhibition also includes six imperial Easter eggs.

"Faberge: The Rise and Fall" is organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the DIA.
