    History of the Egg:
    The Lost Third Imperial Easter Egg by Carl Faberge. Given by Alexander III Emperor and Autocrat of all the Russians to Empress Marie Feodorovna for Easter 1887.
    The jeweled and ridged yellow gold Egg stands on its original tripod pedestal, which has chased lion paw feet and is encircled by colored gold garlands suspended from cabochon blue sapphires topped with rose diamond set bows. It contains a surprise of a Swiss lady's watch, with a white enamel dial and open work diamond set gold hands. The watch has been taken from its case to be mounted in the Egg and is hinged, allowing it to stand upright. Made in the workshop of Faberge's Chief-Jeweler: August Holmstrem, St. Petersburg, 1886-1887. Height 8.2 cm Interesting fact about this egg: The original egg was found by a scrap metal dealer from the Midwest which had no idea that the tiny golden egg he was planning to meltdown was actually a $33 million relic from the court of imperial Russia. The unidentified man unknowingly hit the jackpot when he purchased the 3.2-inch egg at a junk market for a mere $14,000.

I couldn't resist buying another

This egg is so lovely and such an amazing replica that I came back months later just to buy another one. The history of how the original was found in a junk store and was going to be melted down for a quick turnaround on the gold until its identity was discovered and it was sold for tens of millions is fantastic. Delivery in less than a week.

3rd Imperial Egg

Unfortunately there were some defects with this egg so I had to return it. Best Pysanky was very easy to work with in this return. Other eggs from them have all been great.

Beautiful in every detail!

This reproduction is even more beautiful in person. The photos here don’t capture the detailing at all - partly because the light reflecting off the egg tends to distort the image. It’s a stunner and is actually very close to the original egg in appearance. Another blue ribbon winner! AAA+++

Beautiful scaled down version of the original Faberge egg

The detail is really nice. The stand is extremely well executed. You will definitely not be disappointed.

Nel complesso una riproduzione davvero bella con un ottimo prezzo! Le ghirlande che decorano la base sono leggermente asimmetriche, ma ̬ un aspetto che si riesce a trascurare. Sicuramente scultura unica sul mercato, che appaga l'occhio alla perfezione!
