Regal Elegance: Designs Inspired by the Craftsmanship of Fabergé Eggs
In 1885, Tsar Alexander III of the Russian Imperial family commissioned jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé to make a bejeweled Easter egg as a wedding gift for his wife. It delighted the empress so much that Fabergé was commissioned to make these opulent eggs for her every year thereafter. Fabergé’s fame as a master craftsman quickly spread throughout Europe, and his legacy lives on to this day.
Embodying exceptional craftsmanship, elegance and luxury, THG-Paris is world-renowned for its exquisite, hand-crafted faucets and accessories for the bath, including these striking collections inspired by the lavish look and meticulous craftsmanship of Fabergé eggs. Each element is created by true artisans who tool, cast, mold and finish each piece using celebrated techniques passed down through generations. In fact, THG was recently awarded the prestigious French “EPV” quality label (a “living heritage company”), a recognition by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry. THG joins the few hundred companies that have been recognized for their rare savoir-faire as a symbol of French excellence. This commitment to excellence is apparent in each meticulously crafted collection below.
