Description: A young boy stares at Fabergé's Imperial Easter Egg with Revolving Miniatures, which is set on a table right in front of him. 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.
