This elegantly classic egg music box will add a lustrous touch of style to any room it is put in, from bedroom, to living room, its Swarovsky crystals catching tiny glimpses of sunlight for fleeting moments before being sent on its long journey through the Universe, perhaps, the longest journey imaginable, as the infinite space of this Universe creates an unbounded path for the light into nothingness... or everythingness... The original egg was crafted by one of the greatest goldsmiths and designers in decorative arts Peter Carl Fabergé (1846–1920) and was Emperor Nicholas II's 1911 Easter gift to his mother, Empress Maria Feodorovna. In 1927, the Soviet government sold the egg to a foreign private collector. Recently, the egg was bought out by Viktor Vekselberg's "Link of Times" Foundation and returned to Russia.
- MATERIAL: A metal alloy that is durable and environmentally friendly. The casting of the egg is carried out using the old wax method. The main background of the egg is applied and the details are decorated by hand with cold, colored enamel. The enamel retains its color and gloss for many years. The egg will remain in its original form for more than one decade. Depending on the model, an egg is manually decorated with high-quality sparkling rhinestones and pearls. Packaged in a gift box.
- PURPOSE: The egg in the style of the famous Faberge eggs is an ideal gift for any occasion, especially for Easter, Birthday, Christmas or the birth of a child. Such a box is perfect for presenting a wedding ring. The egg is considered a symbol of fertility and therefore it will be a unique wedding gift. It is convenient to store jewelry and small memorabilia in it. For example, you can store your baby's first tooth in the small egg-box.
- CARE: Does not require special care. It is enough to wipe with a damp soft cloth from dust. Do not wash the box in water. If the rhinestones fade over time, it is enough to wipe them with a glass cleaner.
Arrived promptly 2 days post-online prder in great condition, except the music part was not continuous. Planned to exchange, but after several twists, the music became continuous - has been functioning well thereafter. Still thinking whether I should purchase the larger version. Amazingly beautiful to behold!
