The TBI Napoleonic Egg










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
