Peter Carl Faberge is the world's most famous jeweler who created eternally original pieces of art. The series of Easter eggs created by Faberge for the Russian Imperial family, from 1885 through to 1916, is regarded as the greatest and most enduring achievement. The Faberge Easter eggs are certainly the most celebrated and inspiring of all his works of art, inextricably bound to the Faberge name and legend. They are also considered as the last great commissioned series of objects of art.
You'll love the elegance of this Faberge green-hued, Imperial Easter egg. A graceful detachable display stand is included with this beauty. Fashioned from fine pewter. Then it is hand enameled by our skilled artisans.
This sparkling egg is adorned with clear crystals and high-polished enamel with golden trim. It opens on a hinge and has a magnetic closure to keep the box securely shut. The piece also comes in a beautiful gift box.

The nephrite egg is adorned with five miniature portraits of the children of Tsar Nicholas II and Alexandra Fedorovna, and contains a replica of the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoe Selo. The oval portraits of the children are framed in diamonds. Above each portrait is a crowned diamond monogram and the first initial of the child represented: Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, Alexei. The replica of the Alexander Palace and its adjoining gardens is concealed within the egg.
The Alexander Palace, even though quite modest, was the Imperial family's preferred residence at Tsarkoe Selo. The egg was presented to Alexandra Fedorovna at Easter in 1908 as a gift from Nicholas II and housed in Alexandra Fedorovnas Mauve Sitting Room in the Alexander Palace from 1913-1916.
