History:When Tsar Nicholas and Alexandra Feodorovna married in 1894 the homesick young bride missed the roses in her homeland country, there was a famous rose garden called Rosenhohe. The Rosebud egg is a jewelled enameled Easter egg made by Michael Perchin under the supervision of the Peter Carl in 1895.It was an ideal gift for Nicholas to give to his adored wife for their first Easter together.
Yellow roses were the most valued ones in the Empress' native Germany. The egg opens like a bonbonniere to reveal a yellow- enameled rosebud. In 1917 the egg was confiscated by the Russian Government and later sold to the jewelers Wartski around 1927. In 2004 it was sold as part of the Forbes Collection to V.Vekselberg who purchased some nine Imperial eggs from the collection, for $100 million

Rosebud Faberge Egg August 28, 2013
Reviewer: Pat from MA  
This beautiful egg looks exactly as described on the website.  My surprise was that the rosebud opens as well - making it perfect to hide a little something special.  I have collected Faberge-style eggs for many years and was delighted with the colors, stand, etc. The price was reasonable for the quality of the egg.  This was my first purchase from BestPysanky - but it will definitely not be my last.
