From the jacket- "Perhaps because of the popularity of the Easter eggs, Faberge's skilled competitors have been largely overlooked. But the imperial Romanov family also gave their warrant to other goldsmiths, such as the Khlebnikov brothers and the large Ovchinnikov firm in Moscow. Faberge and the Russian Master Goldsmiths tells their story and features their masterpieces as well as Faberge's."
