Years ago, here in NYC there was a huge Faberge exhibition at A la Vielle Russie. Quite a sight to see. Malcolm Forbes lent his collection, as did Oprah Winfrey, among many others.

Always interesting, I really like(d) those Faberge eggs. Not because of the jewelry, but because of the ingenious surprises and effects they eggs had.

The Blue Tsarevich Constellation Egg was in production for Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna. However it was never finished due to the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II prior to Easter of 1917.

 Star  Thanks so  much for this and the other links.  I've long been fascinated by the Faberge eggs, and I have this pop up book that features five or six of the eggs.

Some are kept in the Armoury Museum in Moscow and were there during the Soviet era.

Since then some very wealthy Russian has made a passion of buying as many as possible and putting them on display at the Faberge Museum in St Petersburg. There are quite a few there along with a lot of other works by Faberge.

I have seen all of these in both museums and they make a visit to Russia that extra bit special.

There are other eggs in the private collections of at least the Danish and British royal families due to their relationships to the Romanovs.
