Eight of the 50 eggs made for the tsars have never been found

A Russian millionaire has bought the world's second-largest collection of Faberge eggs which was scheduled to
be auctioned by Sotheby's in April.

Oil and gas industrialist Victor Vekselberg bought the entire Forbes collection of nine eggs and other items,
valued at about $90m.

He hopes to take the tsarist treasures to post-Communist Russia by Easter.

Only the Kremlin has more eggs - 10 - out of the 50 created by jeweller Carl Faberge for Russia's imperial
family.

Confirming that Sotheby's had negotiated the sale for an undisclosed sum, a spokeswoman for the auction
house in New York said it had "happened very quickly" but had been "a very serious offer that the Forbes family accepted".
