History of Eggs

Great Easter Egg, also known as Great Paschal Egg. In history, Easter Eggs were given during springtime and these eggs symbolizes fertility and rebirth. During the 1914, Henrik Immanuel Wigstrom created this Easter Egg called "Cathering the Great Easter Egg" where there's a figure of Catherine the Great seated inside the egg. The egg can be opened which will reveal the Catherine the Great figure.
During Easter, the Twelve Monogram Egg was an egg that Nicholas II presented to both his mother and wife. This egg was crafted using the champleve technique an enamel technique which decorates an item through etching, carving, or die struck.
This was an Easter Egg that Nicholas II presented to his mother, Maria Feodorovna. This Easter Egg was crafted under the supervision of Peter Carl Faberge. Peter Carl Faberge was best known for the famous Faberge eggs like many other Easter eggs, but the materials used were precious metals and gemstones. Similar to the Great Paschal Egg, there is a figure inside the egg, but inside the Gatchina Palace Egg is a miniature gold replica of the palace at Gatchina.
This was a lamp Emily Carr painted. The lamp is in form of miniature totem.
