Exquisitely detialed with seed perals and diamonds, the original Faberge Easter egg was commissioned by Tsar Nicholas II in 1898 for his beloved wife Tsarina Alexandra.  This sparticular egg was her favorite as it held images of Tsar Nicholas II, Grand Dutchess Olga and Grand Dutchess Tatiana.  It became a hallmark of beauty and technical expertise by the world renowned artisal Carl Faberge, whose work remains unsurpassed to this day.
