Original Swiss magazine article / magazine clipping from the year 1949. The article is titled "Easter Eggs by Carl Faberge: Jeweller for the Czars" and is written by Alfred Chapuis. The article was carefully removed from a Swiss magazine.
The text is in English.
The opening paragraph to the article reads:
"There are few artist-jewellers or goldsmiths whose names are as famous as those of great painters or sculptors. Carl Faberge was however amongst these privileged persons and we believe that in the future, he will rank with Benvenuto Cellini, Francois Briot, Jamnitzer, to name only three amongst the great masters of three different countries."
The article is approximately 8 pages in length (on 5 sheets of paper). It includes one page which shows a full color image (this page is blank on the reverse). There are also a number of great black and white images within the text.
This is an original magazine article/magazine clipping, which was removed directly from a 1949 Swiss magazine. (The rest of the magazine is not included.) This is not a reprint or a reproduction.
As with most vintage magazine articles, there is some light yellowing to the paper due to age and there are some small bends and light wear. [The images shown are of the actual magazine article/clipping offered for sale.]
[Please note: this is a magazine article/magazine clipping only; no other items are included.]
