1906 The Swan Faberge Egg

Peter Carl Faberge is the world's most famous jeweler who created eternally original pieces of art. The series of Easter eggs created by Faberge for the Russian Imperial family, from 1885 through to 1916, is regarded as the greatest and most enduring achievement. The Faberge Easter eggs are certainly the most celebrated and inspiring of all his works of art, inextricably bound to the Faberge name and legend. They are also considered as the last great commissioned series of objets d├Ľart.
You'll love the elegance of this Faberge inspired, purple hued, Easter egg. A graceful detachable display stand comes with this beauty. Fashioned from fine pewter. Then it is hand enameled by our skilled artisans.

  • Egg History:
    The Swan Egg was ordered in 1906 by Tsar Nicholas II, the egg was presented to the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna on Easter that year for her 40th wedding anniversary. The egg was made of mauve enamel, with gold trim. On the exterior is a twisted ribbon trellis design of rose-cut diamonds, as well as a portrait diamond on the top inscribed "1906". Another portrait diamond on the other end once held the Imperial monograph. The "surprise" that came inside the egg is a miniature gold and silver swan on a "lake" of aquamarine. By winding a gear beneath one of the wings, the swan's mechanical neck and wings move. In Russia, the swan is considered a symbol of family life and the permanence of the bond of marriage.

    A Beautiful Piece of History May 13, 2014
    Reviewer: Joe Alexandrovitch from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada  
    I ordered 4 eggs so far from this collection, but the Swan Egg so far is my favorite. All the eggs in the collection are pretty heavy - these are not flimsy reproductions made of plastic. The color closely represents the materials of the original. Discrete magnets are used for the closures, instead of mechanical locks that will seize and break over time. This piece fits together nicely, and the egg is nicely balanced and displayed in the cradle provided. As a gift, the swan's compartment could serve as a perfect place to stash a small gold coin, charm piece or love note to the recipient. Definitely a favorite from the Imperial Faberge collection!

    Lovely Swan Egg May 3, 2014
    Reviewer: Pat from Massachusetts  
    I am delighted with my latest purchase from BestPysanky - a large purple egg on an exquisite stand.  It's almost hard to find how to open the egg because the opening follows the gold lines of the egg.  The surprise swan is lovely and also a good size because of the size of the egg itself.  It is an impressive reproduction of the Russian Imperial Swan Egg - the original, of course, designed by Faberge.
    It is also reasonably priced considering the workmanship.
