ADOPTED!!Few things in life are as beautiful as the world renown Faberge’ Eggs – well, except for this stunning 2 year old Rat Terrier mix. With her pearl white coat with its golden accents, her amber eyes that sparkle with mischief and those velvet soft ears that flop in the most adorable way, this pup is definitely gorgeous enough to be presented to an Empress. Now if only she can find a czar with a discerning eye to see the sensational radiance that hovers just under the surface of Faberge’s luxurious fur.
The first Fabergé egg was crafted for Czar Alexander III, who had decided to give his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna, an Easter Egg in 1885, possibly to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their betrothal. Known as the Hen Egg, the first Fabergé egg is crafted from gold. Its opaque white enameled "shell" (sound like the coat of this pup?) opens to reveal its first surprise, a matte yellow-gold yolk. This in turn opens to reveal a multicolored gold hen that also opens. The hen contained a minute diamond replica of the imperial crown from which a small ruby pendant was suspended (look at the spot on Faberge’s head!). Although the famed goldsmith went on to create more and more elaborate eggs, the first one will always be the most famous.
This Faberge’ would like the opportunity to bring a little brilliance to your home and she won’t cost the fortune that those jeweled ones do (at least $33,000,000), she isn’t as delicate and you won’t have to wait until Easter to bring her home.
