Resurrection Egg

Made between 1885 and 1890, this egg is one of Faberge's masterpieces; exquisitely made in the manner of the Italian Renaissance. The three gold figures in the group are enamelled en ronde bosse - white drapery and lilac-coloured wings. The grass and the ground on which the group is arranged are enamelled pale green and brown with yellow flecks, and the base is surrounded by a narrow belt of rose diamonds.

The door is enamelled to simulate marlbe with a coral-colored handle. The whole Resurrection scene is contained within a carved rock crystal egg, the two hemispheres held together by a line of rose diamonds. A large pearl serves as the shaft for this egg.
