Decorated Eggs

Fabergé Style Eggs for Sale

The original Fabergé eggs were objects of opulence, wealth and extravagance. Even today, they are still considered some of the most exquisitely and intricately decorated works ever created, and the lasting fascination with Fabergé has led to modern artists creating Fabergé inspired eggs. These pieces pay homage to and influence the original designs, using natural goose and ostrich eggs to create delicate, intriguing little works of art that make wonderfully unique gifts for every occasion.

The Inspiration Behind Fabergé Style Eggs

Fabergé eggs were originally created by the House of Fabergé in St Petersburg in Russia under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé. The most famous were the imperial eggs made for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicolas II as Easter gifts for the Tsarinas. The eggs were all one-of-a-kind, featuring pigmented layers of enamel, delicately laced metalwork, gold leaf, diamonds, and precious stones like emeralds and pearls. Many of Fabergé’s decorated eggs could be opened, revealing a surprise trinket inside, such as a miniature portrait, tiny sculpture or clock.

What makes the original Fabergé eggs so intriguing today is their scarcity, which fuels interest and drives sales into the tens of millions at auctions. Many of the imperial eggs are now housed in museums, the Kremlin Armory and public institutions. However, some are still unaccounted for and remain an ongoing source of fascination for many.
