The Standart Yacht Egg is a jewelled Easter egg made in 1909 for Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. It was presented by Nicolas II to his wife. It is currently held in the Kremlin Armoury Museum in Moscow, and it is one of the few Fabergé eggs that have never left Russia.


The Standart Yacht Leaf Egg is a transparent hollowed-out rock crystal egg, mounted horizontally, with a gold band with inlaid leaves of green enamel and small diamonds marking the separation point between upper and lower halves, which bears the inscription "Standart 1909". A crowned lapis lazuli eagle is perched on either side of the egg and a large pear-shaped pearl hangs from each. The shaft consists of two lapis lazuli dolphins with intertwined tails. It is on an ornate stand with classical overtones, made from gold, pearls, and enamel.

The surprise is a golden replica of the Imperial Yacht, the Standart Yacht, made of gold and platinum, and coated in vitreous enamel. The model rests on a carved bed of crystal representing the ocean, but can be removed from the egg.


The ca. 5,500 ton yacht Standart was commissioned by Alexander III in Copenhagen. It was first launched in 1895 and was 116 meters long, making it the largest yacht in the world at that time. It had thirty rooms, and a stable for a cow to ensure the imperial children of fresh milk! The yacht took the imperial family on frequent sorties along the Baltic and the Finnish coasts.



The Alexander III Commemorative egg is made in 1909, for Nicholas II of Russia, who presented it to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.

The egg commemorates Alexander III of Russia, who had died fifteen years previously. The egg is one of four to commemorate Alexander, along with the Alexander III Portraits, Alexander III Equestrian and Empire Nephrite eggs. The surprise was a miniature gold bust of Alexander.



The egg is one of the seven Imperial Fabergé eggs that are currently missing; and one of only two lost eggs for which a photograph exists, the other being 1903's Royal Danish.


The Colonnade egg is made for Nicholas II of Russia, who presented it to his wife, Alexandra Feodorovna upon the birth of their only son, the tsarevich Alexei.As a clock-egg, the Colonnade egg contained no surprise.


The Colonnade Egg is made of Bowenite, four-colour gold, silver-gilt, platinum, guilloché enamel and rose diamonds. It is one of only four Faberge Easter Eggs to include a clock in the design. The Colonnade Egg features a rotary clock made by the Swiss firm Henry Moser & Cie.


The egg symbolizes a temple of love. A pair of platinum doves represent the love of Nicholas and Alexandra. Four silver-gilt cherubs sit around the base of the egg, each representing Nicholas and Alexandra's four daughters: Anastasia, Olga, Maria, and Tatiana. Alexei is represented by a silver-gilt cupid, which surmounts the egg.The cupid is now missing a silver-gilt staff or twig which was held in his right hand and was used to indicate the hour.


Upon the abdication of Nicholas II and the imprisonment of the family in 1917, the Colonnade Egg was confiscated by the provisional government. It then appears on a 1922 list of confiscated treasures moved from the Anichkov Palace to the Sovnarkom, which was a state-run organization which collected and conserved treasures. In 1927 the Colonnade Egg was sold as one of nine eggs to Emanuel Snowman of London antique dealer Wartski. Two years later it was sold to Queen Mary of Teck and inherited by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. It remains in the Royal Collection.

The dates 1894 and 1911 are set beneath the portraits of the Tsarina and the Tsar, respectively.

Unknown to all but the royal family, Alexei was expected to die of hemophilia and was at one point so close to death that the Russian Imperial Court had already drawn up his death certificate. When Alexei survived, Fabergé, who knew of the Czarevich's health, created the egg for Alexei's mother Czarina Alexandra Fyodorovna as a tribute to the miracle of his survival.


The portrait portrays Alexei in his sailor suit, a favorite of the Tsarevich's. The original double-sided watercolor miniature portrait has suffered damage. The current portrait on display is an archival photograph. Inside the egg, an engraved golden disc with a rose window design serves as a platform for the portrait frame.

Steel Military Egg, 1916. Presented by Nicholas II to Czarina Alexandra Fyodorovna. Gold, steel, nephrite. Kept in Kremlin Armoury Museum, Moscow.



Made during World War I, the Order of St. George egg commemorates the Order of St. George that was awarded to Emperor Nicholas and his son, the Grand Duke Alexei Nikolaievich.The Order of St. George egg and its counterpart the Steel Military egg were given a modest design in keeping with the austerity of World War I, and Fabergé billed 13,347 rubles for the two.The Order of St. George egg left Bolshevik Russia with its original recipient, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna.


The egg was created in 1917, and was due to be completed and delivered to the Tsar that Easter, as a present for his mother, the Empress Maria Feodorovna. But before the egg could be delivered, the February Revolution took place and Nicholas II was forced to abdicate on March 15. On April 25, Fabergé sent the Tsar an invoice for the egg, addressing Nicholas II not as "Tsar of all the Russians" but as "Mr. Romanov, Nikolai Aleksandrovich". Nicholas paid 12,500 rubles and the egg was sent to Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich at his palace, for presentation to the Empress, but the Duke fled before it arrived. The egg remained in the palace until it was looted in the wake of the October Revolution later that year.

这枚彩蛋是在1917年打造的,已完成并准备交付给沙皇,作为送给他的母亲玛丽亚的礼物。但彩蛋在呈上前,二月革命爆发,3月15日尼古拉二世被迫退位。 4月25日,法贝热送沙皇的发票上,已不再称尼古拉二世为“沙皇”,仅作为“罗曼诺夫先生,尼古拉·亚历山德罗”。尼古拉斯支付了12,500卢布,鸡蛋被送到大公迈克尔·亚历山德罗维奇的宫殿,以交给皇太后,但公爵在彩蛋送达之前出逃。彩蛋留在宫中,直到它在十月革命之后晚些时候被洗劫一空。

The egg is made out of Karelian birch panels set in a gold frame. This is a departure in design from previous eggs, which were far more ornate and gilded. The change was due to austerity measures taken as a result of World War I, both by the Russian Imperial family, and the House of Fabergé. However, the Karelian Birch egg was the only one to use an organic substance (wood) as a primary construction element. Its "surprise" was a miniature mechanical elephant, covered with tiny rose-cut diamonds, wound with a small jewel-encrusted key.


Constellation (unfinished)

Due to the Russian Revolution of 1917, the egg was never finished or presented to Tsar Nicholas' wife, the TsaritsaAlexandra Feodorovna.


The egg, as it is known from 1917 document, was made of blue glass with a crystal base, and the Leo sign of the zodiac is engraved on the glass. (The heir to the Russian throne, Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich of Russia, was a Leo). There are stars that are marked by diamonds, and there is a clock mechanism inside the egg.

从1917年的文献记载,该彩蛋是由蓝色玻璃与水晶作为底座,狮子座标志刻在玻璃上。 (俄罗斯王位继承人阿列克谢·尼古拉耶维奇是狮子座)。有钻石镶嵌代表星星和一个时钟在彩蛋内。



为了获得更多外国货币,斯大林在1927年卖出许多法贝热制作的蛋雕。从1930年至1933年间,总共有14皇室蛋雕流出俄罗斯。许多蛋雕被卖给西方石油公司的总裁阿曼德·汉姆(Armand Hammer)、一位列宁的私交(他的父亲是美国共产党的创始人)与伦敦的古董经销商。
