Scope and Contents

Description: A young girl smiles as a museum guard presents her with Faberge's rabbit pitcher. She holds another open Fabergé egg in her hands while another guard looks on. In the 1950s and 1960s, the museum regularly set up publicity shots with children that allowed them to take a closer look at (and often touch!) the Fabergé artworks.
