Faberge exhibition entering final weeks in Detroit
DETROIT (AP) — A display featuring more than 200 objects made under the direction of Karl Faberge (FA'-buhr-zhay) at an art exhibition in Detroit is entering its final weeks.
"Faberge: The Rise and Fall" runs through Jan. 21 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The museum will be open to celebrate Martin Luther King Day.
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.
