    Egg History:
    The Bay tree egg (also known as the Orange tree egg) is a jeweled carved enameled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Faberge in 1911, for Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, who presented the egg to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna on April 12, 1911. First known in 1935 as a Bay Tree Egg, this egg which had since 1947 been incorrectly labeled as an Orange Tree, but has recently been correctly identified as a bay tree, based on the original Royal Russian invoice.
    The egg was confiscated by the Provisional Government in 1917 and transferred from the Anichkov Palace to the Kremlin. It was one of nine eggs sold by Antikvariat to Emanuel Snowman of Wartski around 1927. It has since passed through the hands of five different owners and was sold by Mrs. Mildred Kaplan to Malcolm Forbes in 1965 for $35,000, equivalent to $212,634 at the time of the 2004 sale of the Forbes Collection to Viktor Vekselberg. Vekselberg purchased some nine Imperial eggs, as part of the collection, for almost $100 million.

Royal egg tree

Great experience but no instructions on how the bird comes out on top

Nice reproduction but a few minor issues

Overall this is a nice reproduction. I wish they had used pearls on the posts and planter, it is really only white enamel paint which looks a little chintzy. I also wish the base was green enamel to simulate the original. The gold paint is too much. This is definitely a much better looking Faberge reproduction than others I have seen for twice as much money. Turning the green 'tree' winds the music box but it does not play for long. The minor annoyances are why I only gave 4 stars.

Bay Tree Royal Egg

Excellent. I had many questions and received prompt and helpful answers to all of them from your staff. Your system even caught and corrected an error in my postal code.
