|The Rosebud Egg was created for the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna, who was originally from Germany. In Germany yellow is considered the noblest color for a rose and Faberge thought it appropriate to create this yellow rosebud as a surprise for the Empress. Made with striking translucent strawberry red enamel guilloche that is divided by rows of hand-set Austrian crystals. A hinged yellow and green rosebud is concealed inside the egg. When opened this flower reveals its own surprise, a miniature egg pendant. Height 2 1/2" without stand. Available in 5 colors (select from: red with yellow bud, green with pink bud, cobalt blue with red bud, sky blue with white bud, yellow with violet bud).
