Pine Cone Egg ca.1900 PDF Print E-mail

This egg was originally made for Varvara Kelkh, a wealthy Russian heiress, who commissioned seven Easter eggs which rivalled in importance and beauty those given to Empress Alexandra Ferorovna.  In fact, over the years, the Kelkh Easter eggs have, on occasions, been identified and sold as Imperial eggs.  This egg is composed of overlapping disks enamelled translucent blue over a guilloche ground with more than 1000 individually set Austrian crystals.  The egg’s surprise is a miniature elephant that, when opened reveals its own surprise, a cobalt blue egg pendant.
Height 3¾” without stand.
