Fabergé Friday

So, here comes two more Fabergé eggs without much information attached to them. The first one is the "Nephrite Bonbonnière Egg", from somewhere between 1908 and 1917!


As it's name states, this egg is made of nephrite. Around it runs a band of gold and white enamel, decorated with five ties set with rose-cut diamonds. On June 8, 2010, it was sold at Christie's, London.

The second egg for today, is one for which we don't know either the name or the year of creation.


This egg is made of heavy, emerald green glass, decorated with enamel flowers and leaf motives in different colors, as well as the two-headed Imperial eagle. The egg rests on a metal base, standing on three pairs of legs fashioned like deer legs and hoofs. On the bottom of the glass the word "Fabergé" is etched, together with the numbers "0025". This egg is now kept in a private collection.

  1. These are magical eggs :) The first one makes me think of Superman, like it comes from the planet Krypton and it has some magical powers inside...maybe it could make us fly or something...who knows!! It's wonderful :) And the second one looks quite Art Nouveau like, I love the birds on it, like they are meant to symbolise something, like a bird of two sides, like a coin with two sides. And the little legs holding it up are so precious. Almost Midsummer Night's Dream like really. It could also have something magical inside in that case ;) But, I love them any how...have a wonderful weekend darling!! I hope it's a lovely one for you :)) xox
