The 4th edition of the series celebrates another exceptional piece of Peter Carl Fabergé’s craftsmanship with this lost and rediscovered treasure – the Tsarevich Egg. The original piece is made of blue lapis lazuli adorned with gold and diamonds. Inside lies a double-headed imperial eagle holding a portrait of Alexei Nikolaevich, the seven-year-old son of Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna. The imperial egg was crafted in 1912 and presented as a gift to Alexei’s mother after his miraculous recovery from severe illness. It is currently displayed in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, US.
