I absolutely love Fabergé, and have many books about the Russian Imperial Easter Eggs. I just heard that a previously unknown piece that has been owned by the Rothschild family since it was made in 1902, sold for 9 million pounds at Christie’s today to a private Russian collector.
I guess that means a nice Fabergé Christmas present is out of the question then?
The Rothschild Egg, with clock and cockerel, pink enamel. You can read more about it, and Russian art week on Christie’s website.
