Imperial Rosebud Egg    (1895)

A gift from Czar Nicolas II to Alexandra in 1895. Rows of diamonds edged with white enamel on gold divide the egg into panels, set on a background of translucent, wave patterned, red enamel. The egg is known as the rosebud egg, becuase it contained an enamel rosebud as a suprise, placed inside the original gift.

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
