The Gem Carvings of Gerd Dreher, A Fabergé Legacy
 

The Gem Carvings of Gerd Dreher, A Fabergé Legacy was on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science from April through August 2004.

For centuries, the picturesque twin villages of Idar-Oberstein, nestled near the Rhine and Mosel River Valleys in Southwestern Germany, have supported a very important gem carving tradition.  Agate and other hard stone carvings have always been Idar's signature.  This exhibition featured the works of master carver Gerd Dreher and also included a selection of 125-150 of Dreher's life-like animal carvings, complemented by natural mineral crystals and gem carving rough.  This exhibition was organized by HMNS.
