Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this unique silver Russian easter egg made by silversmith P. Barabanon in Moscow in the late 19th Century.
The exterior has a bright-cut style engraving of scrolls, natural motifs and floral designs encompassing both the lower and upper half of the egg.
The egg can be opened by twisting the two ends, revealing a magnificent gilt interior. Small items may be stored inside the egg including as pills if one desires to do so.
Unlike counterpart "egg-cup" Russian egg designs, this unique design does not feature any screws/stands and solely presents itself as an ornamental and collectable object of Imperial Russian silver.
The egg has an intricate level of craftsmanship from the overall aesthetic proportions to the airtight fit of the lid. The fine craftsmanship is further apparent in hand with its seamless smooth dimensions and dense weight.
Both ends of the egg are hallmarked with the 84 Kokoshnik Moscow mark and the maker's mark for P. Barabanon.
A highly collectible piece of Imperial Russian Silverware with a novelty and collectable aspect for both silver and Russian history enthusiasts.
