As I understand there are about 8 or nine eggs unaccounted for that is their present whereabouts are unknown one such egg is the A Danish egg made for Marie...I will check my notes for mroe details.....soem of the eggs are only known from Faberge archives and some existence are more supposition presuming that two eggs were given every year by Nicholas since his coronation. I understand that recently it was determined that no eggs were mad ein 1905 because of the Russo Japanese War

Maybe Kremlin egg took much time to do than they expected (1904-1906).
To make all details inside of the Uspensky Cathedral - it was very hard, I suppose.
I think that this is the biggest one.
I do not think that the Russo-Japanese war could affect Nicholas to save money and not to order the egg.
Even World War I 's egg was made.

Hi everybody,

For a long time I have been reading the posts in this forum but never before post a message. Yesterday I saw my site mentioned here in another topic so I might as well post it myself.

Since I was a child I have been collection information and images on Fabergé Eggs. There was almost nothing in the Dutch language so I decided to learn how to build a site and make my own. The whole site was first made in Dutch and later I translated the Fabergé part in English. Since last February it is in the air and here it is: http://www.mieks.com and a direct link to the English pages is: http://www.mieks.com/Faberge2/index2.htm.

There are pictures of I believe all the known eggs. Just this morning I  got a beautiful picture of the Yussupov Egg and put it on the egg-page I made only yesterday!

kind regards,
Annemiek Wintraecken

I concur, grandduchessella, it is fabulous.  Miek, welcome to the Alexander Palace forums.  I must tell you how much I have enjoyed looking at your site.  I was especially impressed by all the information you provided on the last two Imperial eggs, the Birch Egg and the Constellation Egg, neither of which were ever delivered to their intended recipients.  I was not even aware of the existence of the Constellation Egg until reading your site.  Thank you for posting the link. Well done!

Thank you for your welcoming me tsaria.  If you'd ever want any information on Faberge, I would be delighted to offer my views and information.

I collect cigarette cases , mostly Russian, gold and silver and have several Faberge objets d'art in my collection.

I am happy to have found this forum and site and I am even more delighted to find people who, like myself, have a deep interest in the Romanov dynasty and its vast historical importance.  

Kindest regards to you and to all members of the forum,

Faberge made fifty Imperial Easter Eggs. The whereabouts of forty two are known.

Two of the missing eight are thought to have survived the turmoil and destruction of the revolution. Sales records suggest the 1888 Cherub with Chariot Egg was sold by Armand Hammer at the Lord and Taylor department store in New York in 1934 and the and the 1889 Necessaire egg given by Alexander III to Marie Feodorovna was taken to Wartski - I can not elbaorate on the latter but there will be more later.

Best wishes to all,

Kieran

Did Hammer write about the 1888 egg in his book, The Quest of the Romanoff Treasure ?

Was in Brussels yesterday to see the new Fabergé exhibit. All Forbes/Vekselberg Eggs are there, the Mosaic Egg and the 1917 Blue Constellation Egg!!

There seem at least to be two of such eggs, but the one in Brussels is unfinished and I am so relieved!

See: http://www.mieks.com/Faberge2/1917-Blue-Constellation-Egg.htm.

For the Fabergé exhibit see http://www.europalia.be/russia2005/program.php?category=1

Hmm.. I came to think about that I've heard that there is painting about the situation where Nicholas II gave the Winter Egg to his mother... I wonder if anyone have any knowledge about this? Ii didn't want to start a new threat for this question so that's why I put this here... :)

Does anyone know which eggs were the favorites of Nicholas, Alexandra, and the Dowager Empress and where they kept them before the revolution? I know that Alexandra kept her Lilies of the Valley egg in her Mauve Boudoir.

Thanks!
