(Worldkings) Top 100 famous collections around the world - P33. Faberge - the world's most expensive easter eggs collection

11-05-2019

(Worldkings.org) - The world’s most expensive Easter Eggs are not made of chocolate, but are in fact some of the most valuable, beautiful and culturally significant creations of the last two centuries.

Although the brand name Fabergé has changed hands over the years, the historical Fabergé eggs were created by Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. It began when Tsar Alexander III commissioned him to create an extravagant bejewelled Easter Egg for his wife Maria Feodorovna.

In subsequent years the design and construction grew more elaborate, more valuable and included a surprise, typically an item of jewellery within the egg such a diamond replica of the royal crown. Very much the Russian royalty version of a Kinder Egg, only without the chocolate.

The tradition came to an end with the Russian Revolution of 1917, Fabergé’s company was nationalised and he fled to Western Europe, eventually settling in Switzerland, before dying in 1920.
