J. Hurtt, 'Cutting the Cord: An Exploration of Fabergé's Mechanical Bell Pushes' in Fabergé Research Newsletter, Fall and Winter 2018 [accessed online 21/10/2022], illustrated
Fabergé was well known for its elegant and sleek designs of objects of utility such as lorgnettes, table lighters and bell pushes. Of the estimated 200,000 objects created by Fabergé during the firms existence, bell pushes only represent 2%, rendering them a select group in the vastness of Fabergé's oeuvre. Unlike the mechanical bell pushes produced elsewhere at the time, Fabergé's bell pushes - as modern as ever - were mostly electric.
