Imperial Cameo Egg    (1914)

The original egg was given by Czar Nicholas II to his mother in 1914. The cameo-style allegorical scenes are painted in off-white monochrome on a translucent pink ground, which are outlined in seed pearls and accented with sprays of diamonds. The large central panels represent the arts and sciences, while the smaller panels personify the four seasons.

TBI's Imperial Cameo 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
