I saw the exhibit on the Fabergé Eggs at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts this week and they are an excellent example of this week’s Photo Challenge: Endurance. They are stunning pieces of art and craftsmanship that have endured over time. Carl Fabergé also created other jeweled and gold encrusted items such as frames, dishes, umbrella handles, cane handles, and carvings, but it’s the famous eggs that caught my imagination.
The photo above is of the Imperial Cesarevich Easter Egg 1912. The miniature portrait of one of the Czar’s sons fits inside the egg.

I have tried to find out information on 1916 Red Cross Egg how many were made? How many were given to soldiers? Any news Media available?
Sorry, I don’t have any information. Here’s a link to the museum’s web page about the exhibit. http://faberge.mbam.qc.ca/en/ I hope it helps.
