Princess Dagmar, the wife of Tsar Alexander III of Russia was presented with the first Faberge Easter egg in 1884. Faberge eggs are flawless, brilliantly coloured enamelwork and precious materials made by Peter Karl Faberge’s firm on a royal warrant to produce an Imperial Egg each year for the tsaritsa. Nicholas II continued the tradition until the end of the Russian Revolution of 1917, and Faberge was sent into exile in Switzerland. The eggs are among the rarest and most precious objects in the world and are considered the highest expression of the enameler’s, goldsmith’s, and toymaker’s arts.
