Authentic antique Imperial Russian solid gold and enamel egg, late 19th century/early 20th century. Details: made of gold with beautiful details, quite heavy considering its size, covered by ruby color enamel on one side and emerald green enamel on the other side, stamped on the suspension rings with the number “56” which is the Imperial mark for 14K gold, there are no other marks in view of the fact that the egg is very small. No Faberge marks are to be seen, but the hand workmanship is of good quality, and unmistakably Faberge in character.
I have attached picture from the book showing all the different styles of Faberge eggs and few identical to this collection. These eggs were made for the upper class by various goldsmiths employed in Faberge workshop, and sold in Faberge store in St. Petersburg.
CONDITION: good with showing the age patina.
MEASUREMENTS: 2 cm (¾ inches) tall. Weight: 4 grams
REFERENSES: (1) “Faberge” by Gerard Hill, (2) “Russian Imperial Style” by Laura Cerwinske.
