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 jeweled 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 Vekselberg who purchased some nine Imperial eggs from the collection, for $100 million
white felt and plastic nest insert was badly folded so that the plastic showed. Had to pull apart, refold and reinsert. Packaging was badly damaged; however no damage to product. Someone needs to check on quality control and packaging.
This was a gift for my friend who is a Russian and she loved it! Arrived quickly.
It's a lovely little egg. The top stays open to see the rosebud nestled inside, and the pendant trails next to it. I'm happy to have it in my collection.
I love this egg. We saw the original last year in SPB. The workmanship is exquisite, and the price was lot less than other sellers.
This was a great value for the price. The egg is sturdy in spite of the fragile appearance. It is also very meticulously made, and very neatly done. Some large companies sell eggs at an exorbitant cost an the workmanship is dreadful. I have purchased Faberge egg items from Best Pysanky several times and have always been pleased!
