History: The first of Imperial Easter eggs known to be dated. Made by M. Perchin under Carl Peter supervision in 1893 for Tsar Alexander III, who presented it to his wife Maria. Currently the gg is located in the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville, Tennessee. It commemorates the Imperial hunting lodge in Abastumani in Caucasus where Grand Duke George spent most of his life after being diagnosed with tuberculosis. Miniatures were done and signed by Krijitski.
The miniatures are revealed by opening four pearl-bordered doors around the egg. Each door bears a diamond-set numeral of the year, forming the year 1893. Behind the hinged cover at the top is a portrait of the Grand Duke in his naval uniform.

Caucasus Faberge Egg November 1, 2013
Reviewer: Maureen from Northern California  
Just seen this piece at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC.  If you put the original next to mine you would be hard pressed to find the difference.  Once again, great price, quality and service.   Please start making more replica's of the real Faberge Eggs!
Thanks

I recieved my Caucasus Faberge egg and I couldn't be happier ...  The egg is beautiful, and the picture doesn't do it justice...
