Gem-Egg-Creations

"When India Early Minshall, a wealthy collector of Fabergé purchased an egg in 1944,
she stated, "Fabergé was called the Benvenuto Cellini of the North, but I do not think
any jeweler can ever be compared to him"  -  She could not know that someday the work
of Manfred Wild rival the work of the great Russian jeweler..."

Bonhams & Butterfields, Los Angeles Auction House


The international press calls Manfred Wild the Fabergé of the 21st century.
