The Legacy of Fabergé
Dateline: Franklin, La. Governor Mike Foster and Alice Foster are hosting a benefit for the St. Mary Landmarks Society Sunday, April 10 from 2:30 to 6:00pm at the Grevemberg House in Franklin. There will be a presentation by Alexander Caldwell titled The Legacy of Fabergé́. Additionally an exhibit of rare Vivian Alexander museum pieces and a trunk show of their latest silver evening pieces will be on display.
The Grevemberg House, located at 407 Sterling Road in Franklin, Louisiana is one of the historical landmarks maintained by the St. Mary Landmarks Society. The proceeds from this benefit will be used to sustain this historic building and other ongoing projects of the Society. Raffle ticket admission is $20. Reservations are required as seating is limited. Vivian Alexander has donated a beautiful evening purse that will be given to a lucky raffle ticket holder at a drawing to be held after the presentation. Raffle ticket holders do not have to be present to win.
Caldwell has dedicated the last twenty years to create and perfect the world’s most elegant evening purses. He was recognized by Forbes for the intricate enamel work used on all of the Vivian Alexander sculptures and bags. Along the way he supplied Warner Bros with the pivotal art piece for their hit movie Oceans Twelve, a replica of the prop will be on display at the presentation. Last year Twentieth Century Fox commissioned him to produce a unique Fabergé egg sculpture for an upcoming movie The Sitter, due out in August. Orders for custom designed sculptures and purses are a steady source for creative challenges.
Additional information, ticket purchase, and reservations can be arranged by calling the Grevemberg House at 337 828-2092.
Note: Alexander will sign any collector purses brought to presentation.
