History: The Rothschild egg is a jeweled, enameled decorated craft made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Faberge in 1902 by the workshop of Michael Perchin, for Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild, who presented the egg to Germaine Halphen upon her engagement to Beatrice's younger brother, Edouard Alphonse James de Rothschild. It is one of the few eggs that was not made for the Russian Imperial family and had been in the Rothschild family since 1905.
It was one of the most expensive eggs that Royal Russian had ever made and sold. It was sold by Christie's auction house in November 2007, for 8.9 million. The price achieved by the egg set three auction records: it is the most expensive timepiece, Russian object, and Royal Russian object ever sold at auction. The egg was bought by Alexander Ivanov, the director of the Russian National Museum. It's one of the most beautiful, valuable and most intricate Royal Russian eggs ever.
