Peter Fabergé was born on May 30, 1846 in Saint Petersburg, Russia to a family in the Jewelry trade. In 1882 he took over the family business after the death of his father's trusted worker Hiskias Pendin. In 1885, Tsar Alexander III gave the House of Fabergé the title and his Easter Eggs were being made from 1885 to 1917 in House of Fabergé. He made about 50 but only 42 still exist to this day.
