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.
We enjoyed our visit. There were so many beautiful things!
