In 1885, Sir Alexander III wished to reward his wife with an eastern gift of significant value. He solicited the services of Peter Carl Faberge, whom Alexander asked to build and expensively garnished decorative Easter Egg.
The sorrow would later appoint Faberge a Cork Gold Smith, a high honor for most practicing in gold smiths. Of course the Faberge Egg was named after Peter Carl Faberge and has been symbolically represented of Easter festivities since it was first created.
Victor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire recently reclaimed the coronation egg on behalf on Russia. He spent a lump sum of $90 Million to re acquire the coronation egg along with eight others of roughly 50 Imperial Easter Eggs, commissioned by the source of Russia since 1900.
Let us be honest, ordinary people can afford any member of the 50 Imperial Easter Eggs of Faberge’s legacy. Instead, they collect Faberge style eggs, which are replicas of Peter Faberge’s originals.
And although it is less expensive thing collecting the originals, the average cost of a replica is still over $200.
A Faberge style Imperial Egg is listed at $800 retail at Fabergestyleeggs.com. Nevertheless, for those who choose to spend less, there are certainly options. Some of the smaller eggs sold for $50 and under, so it is really a question of how much the consumer chooses to spend.
The Faberge egg also influents similarly crafted items in the 1900’s, which have since become antiques worthy of attention. For an instance, a Russian jeweler and antique dealership in New York City whose name I would not attempt to pronounce, is currently optioning of a Faberge cobalt blue, enamel hand seal, dated March 26, 1904.
So Faberge continues to influence the antique market of today. It is a sort of religious and historical symbolism that makes Faberge an attractive piece of antiquity to posses.
However, before purchasing any piece, make sure to evaluate the material from which it was constructed. This is a especially true a Faberge style eggs, the majority of which are crafted by jewelers working today, who sometimes use the allure Faberge’s history to inflate the price of the newer piece. Do not be fooled.
The majority of Faberge is made of precious metal embedded with jewels. Look into the specifics and ask questions. Most recently, it has been announced that Faberge luxury goods plans to resurrect its founder’s work next year.
So look for more information in Faberge products in faberge.com in the upcoming months. And if you are a fledgling Faberge collector, good luck to you.
