Fabergé Limoges Boxes

You may recognize Fabergé as the Russian company famous for making those fabulous jeweled eggs for the Russian Czars. Today, the modern Faberge company reproduces those famous eggs acheiving a quality rarely seen elsewhere.
Fabergé Eggs made in France of Limoges porcelain for The House of Fabergé are designed and completed in the Fabergé workshops. The example provided is retired, the metalwork is sterling silver, plated with 24k gold. The quartz clock has a Swiss movement. The little gadget in the top of the egg very cleverly would hold the egg open to display the timepiece, if desired, or would fold inside to close the egg completely. This particular design came in several colors: blue, pink, green & yellow and retailed in the $500 range.
