My favorite is the Lily of the Valley Egg. As beautiful as Faberge's eggs are, some of their tiaras from that period are equally beautiful.

The Cherub with Chariot Faberge Egg was crafted and delivered in 1888 to Tsar Alexander III. A clock was inside the egg on the chariot.

Yes.

They are fantastic.

If you get the chance to go to St Petersburg it is well worth making the time to go to the Faberge Museum to see not only the eggs but a lot of other pieces by Faberge.

In 2004 I took a holiday to Russia and saw the eggs in Moscow - Kremlin displays - and St Petersburg - they were just amazing. If you can get there then it is worth the effort  Thumb up

The enamelwork of the house of Faberge is exquisite when viewed in person. It is difficult to capture in photographs, especially in the old days. There are tiny waves and patterns in the enamel that give it a deep pearl luster, regardless of the color of the enamel.
