The original Twelve Monograms also known as the Alexander III Portraits Egg is a jeweled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Faberge in 1896, for the then Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II. Tsar Nicholas presented the egg to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna. The Twelve Monograms/ Alexander III Portraits Egg was the second egg given by Tsar Nicholas to his mother. It is currently held in the Hillwood Museum in Washington, D.C. as part of the Marjorie Merriweather Post Collection.
Each panel of the original egg contains a Cyrillic cipher of Alexander III and Maria Fedorovna, set and crowned in diamonds, set against the dark blue enamel with a design of red gold, rose-cut diamonds, portrait diamonds and velvet lining. It is covered by six panels each divided by bands set with rose-cut diamonds and decorated with the Imperial crown and Imperial monograms (MF) Inches Maria Fyodorovna Inches and (AIII) Inches Alexander III Inches. Each monogram appears six times, with Maria's monogram appearing on the top half of the egg and Alexander's appearing on the bottom.
My sister N Law Loves it.
It's nicer looking than the photos. The only regrets: contrary to the original, the egg doesn't have inserted crystals on the longitudinal panels separations, nor it's opening. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5d/57/1f/5d571feb5155425be7f722e0d6744589.jpg
Cette reproduction de l'oeuf impérial monogramme fait un très bel effet sur un meuble avec sa couleur bleu nuit avec les reliefs or et les brillants. Oeuf relativement lourd. Les livraisons de bestpysanki sont toujours aussi rapides et soignées.
Purchased as a gift for Christmas. The quality and beauty of the piece far exceeded my expectation! I would highly recommend this product.
Love this item, very nice
It happens to be one of the finest replicas of the Faberge egg collection that I have. I love it. Thank you Bestpansky!
Most impressed with yet another Faberge treasure from BestPysanky. Excellent workmanship. A great addition of my collection.
