Yesterday afternoon we visited the Fabergé Museum in St Petersburg. The weather was still very unpleasant but we parked close & did not have to queue. It was well organised. We were in small groups of 12 & we had a specific time to enter so that was great.
Here’s the Fabergé story:
This is the first egg which is made of gold & coated with white enamel to look like a hen’s egg. The surprise inside was the golden yolk.
Here is the coronation egg. The little carriage, every part of which actually works, was the surprise inside & it is an exact model of the actual carriage. It was beautiful.
What do you think of this punch set? It’s solid silver. I can see us all drinking punch out of it at a party, can’t you?
David loved this beautiful silver samovar. His great aunt had a lovely one the family brought out when they emigrated. Not solid silver like this one, though.
One thought on “Amazing Easter eggs”
Which suitcase is the punch set coming home in Di? Happy to help you drink the Punch any time! It all sounds lovely and interesting. D xx
