Nashville, TN – Cheekwood Museum of Art has been selected to house the Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation Collection, among the world’s most significant compilation of Fabergé pieces.  The exhibition will open in February 2007.  Harold H. “Spook” Stream, a long-time Nashvillian, has arranged for the Collection to be on loan to Cheekwood.  Mr. Stream is the great-nephew of the late Matilda Geddings Gray, who began collecting works by Fabergé in the early 1930s and who established the foundation to provide for their enjoyment by a broad segment of the public.

“The Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation is delighted to loan this remarkable exhibit to Cheekwood in hopes that many individuals from this region will have the opportunity to cherish these truly exquisite works of art,” said Harold Stream.  “With its careful harmony of botanical gardens and decorative arts, Cheekwood is an ideal home for these fabulous pieces, many of which depict stunning floral arrangements.  We are pleased to announce this new partnership”.

Pieces from the Collection have been exhibited worldwide.  The Collection includes 57 rare pieces highlighted by three Russian Imperial Easter eggs, and a number of important functional items, fantasy items and floral works.  Cheekwood will dedicate a gallery in the Museum of Art to the Collection beginning February 2007. 

Notable works include:
