Eggs are good for you











Like my own ancestors, a French Huguenot; a refugee from the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes under Louis XIV in 1685.

Unlike my own ancestors, the brilliant craftsman of some of the most fabulous, most desired, most expensive jewellery and bejewelled objets d'art in history.

These are just some of the delights created by Peter Carl Fabergé (May 30th 1846 – September 24th 1920).

[The anniversary of his birth is today celebrated by none other than Google]

  1. We have the same ancestors!

    Mine moved to Ireland.

    Maybe we're related!

    Poor Jon.
