Pansy Egg Date 1899 Presented by Nicholas II to Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna
The Alexander III Equestrian Egg was ordered by Nikolay II from Faberge to his mother, a widow of Alexander III. The lower part of the egg serves as a platform for a gold model of a statue of Tsar Alexander III on horseback, standing on a nephrite base embellished with two rose-cut diamond bands, engraved with Fabergés signature, supported by cast platinum cherubs coiled into position on a base of crystal.It is currently held in the Kremlin Armoury Museum in Moscow.
This Micro photograph was taken by Slinkachu, I think this photograph shows that we are making new things everyday and I like this photograph because I think it was very clever how he made it look like they were chipping off the shell of the egg because he made it look like it was builders doing their work.
12 Monograms Faberge Egg was made for Nicholas II to give to his mother Maria in 1895. It was completed in only six months by adapting the planned egg on the death of Alexander III. The surprise is missing.
