A spectacular Faberge print of the Faberge Fifteenth Anniversary Egg in its packing case also made by the House of Faberge. This egg was presented in 1911 to the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna.

With every passing year, the design of the Imperial Easter Eggs became more and more spectacular as Faberge workmasters were determined to continue to please Their Majesties. In 1911, Czarina Alexandra received this masterpiece "wrapped" inside a fitted velvet-and-silk-lined case.

When removed from this luxurious packaging, Alexandra needed only hold the egg to relish its jewel-like radiance and discover it's surprises. Eighteen superbly painted scenes by court miniaturist Vasily Zuiev capture in astonishing detail the principal achievements of Nicholas II's reign over the past fifteen years.

The historical events, which occupy nine of the panels, include the coronation and the procession that brought the Imperial couple to the ceremony at Uspensky Cathedral. Perhaps, especially poignant for Alexandra are the individual portraits not only of herself, but also of her husband and their five children.

The remaining two panels commemorate the dates 1894 (the year of Nicholas and Alexandra's marriage) and 1911, with the name Faberge inscribed in both.

The egg is gold and the enameled ground is a lustrous white. Deep-green enameled laurel leaves defined in gold and joined by crosses of rose diamonds separate the eighteen panels on the egg's shell. A thin band of gold and white enamel encloses each panel, and diamonds frame each portrait and dated oval.

A large table diamond mounted in chased gold adorns the Czarina's monogram at the top of the egg, and a large, similarly set rose diamond is at the bottom. The perfectly balanced combination of exquisite jeweled work and portraiture makes this egg a tour de force of Faberge's art and celebrated Alexandra's life, both personal and political, as Czarina of Russia.

Just imagine, now you can display your own great taste with your very own Faberge Collection! Whether you select one or many, they will bring years of enjoyment.

This stunning color print is perfect for just about anywhere in your home, or, as a gift for just about anyone. Nothing is as dazzling and luxurious as these prints of Faberge works made for the Russian Imperial Crown--collect several and make a Faberge collage wall.

ABOUT THE MAKER:
Peter Carl Fabergé, also known as "Karl Gustavovich Fabergé", (May 30, 1846 – September 24, 1920), was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials.

In 1885, Tsar Alexander III gave the House of Fabergé the title; ‘Goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown’. The Tsar also commissioned the company to make an Easter egg as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria.

The Tsar placed an order for another egg the following year. Beginning in 1887, the Tsar apparently gave Carl Fabergé complete freedom with regard to egg designs, which then became more and more elaborate.

According to Fabergé Family tradition, not even the Tsar knew what form they would take—the only stipulation was that each one should contain a surprise. The next Tsar, Nicholas II, ordered two eggs each year, one for his mother and one for his wife, Alexandra. The tradition continued until the October Revolution.

Although the House of Fabergé is famed for its Imperial Easter eggs, it made many more objects ranging from silver tableware to fine jewelry. Fabergé’s company became the largest jewellery business in Russia. In addition to its Saint Petersburg headquarters, it had branches in Moscow, Odessa, Kiev and London. It produced some 150,000 to 200,000 objects from 1882 until 1917.

OUR GICLEE PRINTS:
Your Faberge print of the Faberge Fifteenth Anniversary Egg will be created using archival, fade-resistant, pigment inks, heavyweight, museum-quality paper and a 12-color process fine-art printer to ensure the most vivid, detailed and long-lasting print. To prevent fading, as with all prints, please never expose them to direct sunlight. To protect your investment, we recommend that you mat and frame your prints.

There is no mat or frame included with this print.

SIZE INFO:
This giclee print is offered in the most popular sizes to make matting and framing a breeze with your local retailer. The print you will receive will measure exactly the dimensions you ordered. It is designed in such a manner that all of the main image will fit well within the standard mat that comes with frames that you can purchase at many retail stores.

BORDERS:
All of our prints are carefully positioned with an approximate half inch border on all sides for matting and framing adjustments, although this may vary slightly based on the size of print you order and the size of the original image. If you would like a different size border, or need to know the exact border size, or a borderless print, just let me know in the "Notes To Seller" when you place your order.

Although we don't currently offer mats or frames, we do offer the following PICTURE FRAME SIZING guidelines on how best to display your prints.

MATTING & FRAMING TIPS:
Select the PRINT SIZE for your needs, then add the mat dimensions to the print size to determine what your final frame size should be. When you plan to mat a print, the rule of thumb is to order your PRINT SIZE one size smaller than your frame size--this allows for the addition of the mat of your choosing. For a statement wall, bigger is better, both with the print size, and the frame size.
