It took 72 years following the October Revolution before the legend of Fabergé was brought back to life. In 1989 the Fabergé Co., New York, named the Pforzheim jeweler Victor Mayer as the exclusive worldwide workmaster. Since then, it has been producing selective jewels, exclusive egg objects, and Objets d'Art in the tradition of Peter Carl Fabergé. Fabergé offices in London, Paris, and New York City.
