VMFA Golden Metal Egg Pendant On 14K GF Chain, VMFA circa 1982 - image 1 of 7

This pretty golden-toned metal egg with enamel outlined lappets around the top dates from 1982 and was made for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA. It is copied from the Lillian Thomas Pratt Collection in the museum. Catalogue No 134, page57 in the VMFA Faberge Book. The museum holds the largest collection of Faberge objects outside of Russia including 5 of the thirteen Faberge eggs commissioned by the Romanov rulers in the late 19th, early 20th century. This particular egg pendant is quite simple in its design unlike most things Faberge designs. Its simplicity contributes to its elegance and the 14K gold filled chain and clasp which it is suspended from makes it very appealing. The chain is 17 inches in length while the pendant measures 1" in length including the jump ring by 1/2" in diameter at its widest point. We will include the original romance card which came with it when we purchased it from a local VA estate. It will be packaged in a jewelry gift box for storage or gifting as you see fit.
