The Moscow Kremlin Egg is by far the largest of the Carl Peter Faberge and was inspired by the architecture of the Moscow Uspenski Cathedral, where all the Russian Tsars were crowned. The egg commemorates the return to Moscow of the royal couple Nicholas II and Alexandra Fyodorovna in 1903. They had tended to avoid the historical capital due to its ill-omened association with a riot during Nicholas coronation, where hundreds of Muscovites were crushed to death. The egg itself was supposed to be presented in 1904 as engraved at the foot in white enamel on a round gold plate is the date. But the delivery was delayed because of the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905).
This was followed by the assassination in the Kremlin of Nicholas' favorite uncle and brother-in-law, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich. So instead the egg was only presented for Easter, 1906. The egg was kept in the Alexandra Fyodorovna Sitting Room in the Alexander Palace.
I can't take my eyes off this wonderful reproduction! Pictures don't do it justice, it has to be seen in its gleaming golden glory. So faithfully reproduced, with its tiny courts and arches, towers and steps, crowned by the Uspensky cathedral's golden dome. A fantastic offering and an enviable purchase!
Very nice my wife loved it.
The egg is beautiful and a great addition to my collection. The egg itself wobbles a bit when place on top, but straightening it is no trouble. I'm happy to have it.
Uovo perfettamente corrispondente alla descrizione molto bello se appassionati di Fabergè. Spedizione velocissima venditore consigliato.
The photo picture does not do the Moscow Kremlin Egg justice. The color of the building is actually a rich golden bronze with a lot of detail. I was very pleased with it. It looked a lot like the actual Faberge egg which I saw in the Moscow Kremlin Armory this August (2017).
