5Russian Jeweled Fabergé Easter Eggs

During the Russian revolution of 1917, many Russians emigrated and took their valuable collections with them. Some items which were lost by Russia in those days still possess a value of universal importance. People collecting antiques are ready to pay millions at auction for such things. Jeweled Fabergé eggs are among these treasures; for instance, Rothshild's Fabergé Egg was auctioned off at Christie's for £8,9 million. Russian imperial art is widely represented in the Hillwood Estate's collection, Museum & Gardens, which is located in Washington, DC. Along with 80 Fabergé pieces, one can find a wonderfully decorated Imperial Catherine the Great Easter Egg.
