Faberge Hen Egg

The history of Faberge and their beautiful and elaborately designed decorative eggs traces back to 19th century Russia. In 1885 Peter Carl Faberge was commissioned by Tsar Alexander III to create a decorative Easter egg as a gift for his beloved wife, the Tsarina. Peter Faberge proceeded to design a work of art unlike anything the world had ever seen before. He fashioned a beautiful and stunning decorative egg that when opened revealed a painstakingly detailed gold hen nestled in a golden yolk. Within the hen was a tiny reproduction of the Imperial Crown which was fashioned from a brilliant diamond. From the Imperial Crown dangled a single dazzling ruby.

The Tsar's wife so loved her gift that Faberge was asked to create a new egg each following Easter. In the beginning the Tsar had them designed based upon his own ideas but eventually he granted Faberge complete artistic freedom to design his stunning eggs according to his own artistic ideals. Each subsequent egg's design represented an important historical Russian event. Faberge's workshop continued to create these beautiful works of art until 1917 when the Russian revolution forced him to flee the country.

Today, the Faberge name and heritage lives on in a new generation of skilled and talented craftsmen. Faberge continues to create beautiful works of art including decorative eggs, crystal glassware and jewelry items which delight collectors around the world.
