Fabergé egg Tamara Nikolic April 7, 2015 Gentelmen, Ladies, Profile, Tamara, Tamara's Choice, TOP 5 Dear ladies and gents, In the spirit of Easter, I will write about the most expensive eggs in the world-Fabergé eggs. A Fabergé egg is one of a limited number of jeweled eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. Each egg, an artistic tour de force, took a year or more to make, involving a team of highly skilled craftsmen, who worked in the greatest secrecy. The House of Fabergé made about 50 eggs, of which 43 have survived. The most expensive was the 1913 Winter Egg, which was invoiced at 24,600 roubles (then £2,460). Prior to the Great War, a room at Claridges was 10 shillings (50 pence) a night compared to approximately £380 today. Using this yardstick, the egg would have cost £1.87 million in today’s money.
