Swan Royal Russian Egg
  • 6" (H) X 3" (D)
  • Pewter, Enamel,Crystals

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.

Swan Faberge Egg March 20, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Dallas, Texas  
The Swan Egg, that I purchased from your company, exceeded my expectations, as have all of the Faberge eggs that I gotten from you.  I look forward to adding more of the eggs to my collection as they become available.

Swan Egg September 21, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This piece is very nice, but I think the reproductions of the Lily of th Valley Egg, the Napoleanic and the 1893 Eggs are more beautiful.  How about a reproduction of the Catherine the Great Egg?
