Billionaire's Faberge Egg Collection to Go on Display in St. Petersburg

Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg's rare collection of works by tsarist jewelry maker the House of Faberge will go on permanent display at a palace in St. Petersburg.

The private Faberge Museum will open at the recently renovated Shuvalovsky Palace on Nov. 19, said The Link of Times, a cultural and historical foundation founded by Vekselberg, the largest individual owner of Faberge eggs.

"Rare paintings and other works of art … are among the exhibits," the foundation said in a statement.

The Link of Times manages the unique collection of about 4,000 artworks from the late 19th and early 20th century, including nine famous imperial Faberge eggs previously owned by the Romanov family.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
