You'll love the elegance of this green-hued, 1911 Bay Tree Easter egg.
This sparkling figurine is adorned with crystals and high-polished enamel with golden trim. It also comes in a beautiful gift box.
The Bay tree egg (also known as the Orange tree egg) is a jeweled carved enameled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Faberge in 1911, for Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, who presented the egg to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna on April 12, 1911. First known in 1935 as a Bay Tree Egg, this egg which had since 1947 been incorrectly labeled as an Orange Tree, but has recently been correctly identified as a bay tree, based on the original Royal Russian invoice.
The egg was confiscated by the Provisional Government in 1917 and transferred from the Anichkov Palace to the Kremlin. It was one of nine eggs sold by Antikvariat to Emanuel Snowman of Wartski around 1927. It has since passed through the hands of five different owners and was sold by Mrs. Mildred Kaplan to Malcolm Forbes in 1965 for $35,000, equivalent to $212,634 at the time of the 2004 sale of the Forbes Collection to Viktor Vekselberg. Vekselberg purchased some nine Imperial eggs, as part of the collection, for almost $100 million.

It's so hard to have a favorite. All of Bestpysanky's Faberge reproductions are so fantastic but this one, with its little rooster and embedded clock, is truly hard to beat. The enamelwork is awesome and the price is great. It came in a beautiful satin-lined box just a few days after I ordered it.
I purchased this as a piece of decoration for my room. I love fabrege eggs and saw this one with the clock and thought it would be nice to have. I love purchasing products from BestPysanky because of the quality of their products. You can tell it is made with care.
I bought this product n they ate beautifully rafted . It’s very royal looking n the blue color is very eye catching
I Love It. The egg Fist rigth in .
