Man Finds 33 Million Dollar Faberge Egg
What an Easter Gift!
You've heard about the goose that laid the golden egg but that's just a story - this is real life. A scrap metal dealer from U.S. Midwest paid $14,000 for a pretty little egg with a Vacheron Constantin watch (complete with gold hands and set with diamonds) inside at a flea market (some flea market with prices like that) and he planned to melt it down. Fortunately for him the value of the materials was just $500.
This tiny egg, smaller than a cupcake and measuring just 8cm (3") high, was made for Alexander III who then gave it to his wife, Empress Maria Feodorovna as an Easter gift in 1887. It disappeared from Russia after the 1917 Revolution and laid undiscovered until now. Upon further investigation the new owner realised that this could indeed be the missing Faberge egg and this was confirmed by the London antiques dealer, Wartski.
Between 1885 and 1916 Faberge made 50 imperial eggs for the Tsars of Russia and of these forty-two have survived. So how many Imperial Faberge eggs are there left to find? Only three of those are known to have survived the Russian revolution so there is hope for us yet.
I do hope you enjoyed this happy Easter story.

Limoges Porcelain Faberge Eggs
Flowery Egg Limoges Porcelain Hinged
Limoges is the Capital City of Limousin
Porcelain Faberge eggs were made in Limoges
Limoge was called 'The Red City' because the kilns that fired porcelain worked day and night, lighting up the sky and coloring the city red.
Limoges was an ideal centre for the production of this fine porcelain ware - a source of Kaolin, the clay needed to make the fine but tough ceramics, was found just outside the city, the River Vienne flows through the town and enabled wood from the surrounding oak and chestnut forests to be floated down to feed the kilns.
No wonder that Peter Carl Faberg collaborated with the skilled porcelain craftsmen to produce his fabulously decorated eggs with Limoges porcelain elements - what better material to use for eggs?
Another element of the Faberge eggs was enamel work, and Limoges is also famous for this. You'll find lots of individual shops run by enamel craftworkers in and around Limoges and Saint Junien.
Why not come and see the amazing and beautiful porcelain for yourself? There's a fantastic porcelain museum, lots of gorgeous boutiques and you can pick up amazing bargains in the porcelain shops. Take a look at our web site for more information www.lestroischenes.com
