The End of an Era

Please step into the gallery. Notice the object in the center case. Here you see a bejeweled Easter egg. Colored eggs are traditional Russian Easter gifts. The last emperors commissioned extravagant eggs from the workshops of Carl Fabergé. This egg shows each of the monarchs of the House of Romanov. This astounding creation celebrates the 300th anniversary of the consecration of Mikhail Feodorovich, the first Romanov czar.
