Faberge Easter Egg, 1902

This Easter egg was presented by Nicolas II to his wife Alexandra in 1902. The four-leaf clover with miniature portraits of the Tsar’s daughters was hidden inside as a surprise.

I’ve had a love of these for decades. My husband (now deceased) bought me a beautiful book about these years ago for Christmas. Then, one year, we went to Richmond, Virginia, to a museum where some of these were on display. I was in total awe! I would love to see more!!!

Dear Carol, you are always welcome to Moscow! I’ll wait for you.

In the Armory chamber collection in Moscow you will see 10 Easter eggs by Faberge and thousands other precious items of applied art.
