The perfume flasks of Russian jeweller and goldsmith Carl Fabergé are on show at London’s Design Museum from 11 July to 11 August. Fabergé would describe the flasks as objets de fantasie, and this owlish fellow (pictured) was designed by his contemporary Hgalmar Armfeld. Students from art and design schools are competing to create a perfume bottle and case in the spirit of Fabergé. The winner will receive 3000 in July, and winning designs will be at the exhibition.
