The Castellated Christmas Tree
Egg. Done in a rich green enamel with a design
in gold suggestive of the battlements of a castle
-- that's what castellated means -- and this
is not my idea of a name but is the name given
it by Fabergé. Personally I don't see
what the whole name thing has to do with Eggs
or Christmas trees -- but "mine is not
to reason why." The apex of the Egg is
a wonderful red, deep and throaty, and perfect
with the rich green and gold.
Open the Egg and inside is a gold
Christmas tree completely studded with alternating
stripes of emerald and clear Austrian crystals.
It sits on a gold plinth that is fastened to
the lower portion of the Egg. The name Fabergé
and the Egg number are engraved on the plinth.
A handsome Christmas gift for anyone!
Our price $450.00. "A
Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight!"
