In 1885, The Tsar Alexander III commissioned Fabergé to design a simple matte white enamel egg for his wife Maria Fedorovna. The Imperial Hen Egg is enameled in opaque white, and polished to give the effect of an eggshell. The shell concealed a removable surprise of matte yellow, gold yolk. Inside the yolk sits a plump golden hen. The Tsarina was so delighted with this elegant Easter gift, that a family tradition was born.Fabergé was now called upon to design an egg every year, and every each of them contained its own special surprise. At first, the Tsar dictated the design of the egg. He would monitor its progress from start to finish. But eventually, in an extraordinary gesture, he gave Fabergé complete creative freedom - no questions asked.
As the ritual continued, the relationship between the Tsar and Fabergé became more familiar. The eggs were now hand-delivered to the palace by Fabergé himself on each Easter morning. Contact me with any questions or additional photos.
