Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In Russia, where the celebration of the Resurrection is the most important event in the Orthodox calendar, the exchange of real, decorated eggs as gifts at Easter has for centuries been a central ritual of the festival. Exquisitely decorated porcelain Easter eggs were produced by the Imperial Porcelain Factory, St. Petersburg, and were used at the Russian court as Easter gifts, presented by members of the Imperial family to courtiers. Russian Imperial Porcelain Easter Eggs presents the most extensive survey of these delicate and now rare objects ever published. Over two hundred of the world's remaining Russian porcelain Easter eggs have been specially photographed and reproduced life-size. This lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced book will become an essential reference source not only for collectors of porcelain but also for anyone interested in the decorative arts or the exciting history of one of the world's most important and fascinating countries.
