Rose Trellis Egg    (1907)

After the death of Alexander III, his son Czar Nicholas II carried on the tradition of giving a jewelled egg to the Czarina, Alexandra Feodorovna. The original of this egg was one such a gift in 1907. The background has a machine-turned, all-over textured pattern in transparent light green enamel. The trellis, set with rose-cut diamonds, contours the egg and is topped by a large diamond. In between the trellis are roses enameled in shades of pink, with vinelike branches in gold and leaves of dark green enamel.

TBI's carefully designed, top quality tin egg is inspired by the priceless original of Carl Fabergé. It measures 69mm wide by 110mm in length.

TBI's designers have patterned the inside of the egg with an authentic velvety red background and gold trellis overlay, in keeping with the originals, but without attempting to reproduce their wonderful suprise interiors
