The Peter the Great Egg

The entire shell of this egg is done in gold relief to simulate a chasing pattern, making one almost feel the swirling snowflakes of a cold Russian winter. The front of the Egg has 2004 on the upper half of the shell and on the lower portion, St.Petersburg, both done in relief. On the rear of the shell, also in relief, is the date 1703.

The Imperial Peter the Great Egg, which inspired this small replica, was a celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the founding of St. Petersburg, the capital of Russia, on which Peter began construction in 1703. Inside the Egg is a replica of the famous statue of Peter the Great by Falconet, commissioned by Catherine The Great and unveiled in 1782. This statue still stands on the banks of the Neva River in St. Petersburg. The clasp of the Egg is the Romanov Double Eagle.

Our price $450.00.
