Peter Carl Fabergé provided luxurious presents to elites from all over the world, and was renowned for his quirky little animals, created from hardstone as charms and ornaments; art historians describe them as possessing ‘psychologically interpretive aspects’. The accentuation of specific characteristics of each subject also gave them distinctive personalities. Fabergé often combined these hardstones with precious metals and coloured gems, seamlessly integrating each with the other to create miniature works of art.
Handcrafted in 18k yellow gold, this egg objet is painted in white opalescent guilloché enamel. The seal is made of 18k yellow gold and painted in white lacquer, sitting atop an agate platform, with two black diamonds for eyes. The egg sits upon a carved frosted rock crystal plinth.
