A fine hardstone egg pendant by Fabergé. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and most well-known jewellery house. The house has become known for their royal commissions and their close ties to the family of Tsar Nicholas II. This exquisite pendant features a carved white agate Easter egg with a central band of glittering diamonds and vibrant rubies. This miniature egg pendant is a charming reference to the larger ornate Imperial Easter eggs made by Fabergé. This piece is signed by Henrik Wigström, one of the most important Fabergé workmasters.
