Mosaic Egg    (1914)

The original was a gift from Czar Nicholas II to his wife Alexandra in 1914. A fine mesh of platinum is set with a myriad of tiny, square-cut stones: rubies, sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, garnets, topazes and quartzes. The five oval panels are bordered by seed pearls and joined with diamonds

The TBI Mosaic 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
