Faberge Egg

 Faberge Caucasus Egg

Date: 1893 

Faberge Caucasus EggVaricolored gold garlands held by diamond bowknots mount this gold egg, overload with vibrant ruby enamel on a guilloche' undersurface.

An extraordinary table-top diamond, gem-encircled, crowns the object; another completes the base.

The Faberge Caucasus Egg has four pearl-bordered doors, each of these bears a diamond-set numeral of the year.  The doors open to reveal the scene of a misty mountain retreat high in the Caucasus mountains where the Grand Duke Georg, younger brother of Nikolai II, spent the greater part of his life because of ill health.  Inside, the miniatures are signed by Krijitski.
