Because of the sanctions for the invasion of Ukraine, the oligarchs now have less money. A high-ranking employee of auction house Christie’s told BILD: “The war in Ukraine has changed a lot of things in the international art trade. For the Fabergé market, it’s a tragedy. And investors are very nervous.
Because: Rich Russians drove up prices with their desire to buy. Fabergé eggs were a popular market for financiers in the luxury sector.
TV star Horst Lichter (60) recently got up close and personal with the Fabergé myth on ‘Bares for Rares’. A contestant brought an artificial egg adorned with a jewel from an inheritance (left for €9,000).
Lights to BILD: “That Fabergé egg we had wasn’t original, it was made in Germany. It was light years away from a Fabergé – and yet it was sensational! I would love to see a real one.”
