Celebration Egg    (1899)

While not a true Imperial egg, it follows the imperial style. Ordered by the mining magnate Alexander Kelch for his wife in 1899. The egg is   encircled by a band of rose-cut diamonds and is divided by bands of matt-finished gold overlaid with rows of pink enamel roses with gold stems which frame translucent pale pink panels underpainted with blue ribbons and either leafy garlands or bare tree branches.

Celebration Egg by TBI
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
