Faberge Millenium Egg Limited Edition Diamond #379 For Sale
In 1999 the Fabergé Collection produced a six inch Galaxy Egg, to commemorate the onset of the new century. It was a limited edition of 500 Eggs made only briefly and only in that one year. All 500 pieces were numbered and marked Fabergé. They were much in demand and the entire edition sold out.
The Egg, made of Limoges porcelain in midnight blue, is incised with a galaxy of stars in gold. Open, it reveals a diamond studded pin "2000". The year pin rests on a gold plated plate. For display purposes there is a small arm that holds the lid of the Egg open.
This is #379 of a 500 LIMITED EDITION Set. NOTE: It comes in a Blue Velvet Case impressed with the Fabergé Double Headed Eagle insignia and has gold plated clasps. Included is the Certificate of Authenticity.
