Dreher Carvings
Five Generations of Gemstone Animals from Idar-Oberstein

English Language: English

Authors: Wilhelm Lindemann, Will Larson, Ekkehard Schneider


The Dreher name is famous in the world of gemstone carvings, and for good reason, in the early twentieth century, earlier generations of Drehers cut gemstones for the famed house of Fabergé. Today Gerd and Patrick Dreher carry on their grandfathers' legacy using traditional techniques to fashion miniature mice, snails, toads, monkeys, and hippos from single colored pieces of gem rough. These unique and highly-sought carvings represent the highest quality in craftsmanship and gemstone artistry. Many of the high-quality photographs in the book were taken by the great Robert Weldon.
