Peter Carl Faberge made 50 beautifully crafted eggs, of which roughly 40 remain. Today, many of them are worth far more than what the Imperial Russian family paid for them when they purchased them from Faberge. Quite a few of the eggs have been lost, which further increases their value. What the Imperial Family would have paid a few thousand dollars for would often sell for several million dollars today.
