Google doodle for Peter Carl Faberge

Peter Carl Fabergé also known as "Karl Gustavovich Fabergé" is Google's honoree today. Born 166 years ago on May 30 (died September 24, 1920) he was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials.

Here's one of those beautiful Faberge Easter eggs, the Bouquet of Lilies or Madonna Lily Egg by Faberge

  2. It's hard not to notice the doodle when it stares you right in the face on a Google search page.

    Happy birthday to your friend.
