Fabrege sculpted the famous eggs from fine metals and exquisite jewel quality stones. None were ever made in China. The "Fabrege" name has long been attached to creations of this sort as an indicator or description of style, similar to how the name "Tiffany" is used, rather than denoting the true provenance of the creation.
If it came from the Franklin Mint it's NOT a Fabrege egg. It's a creation crafted in the style of those eggs made for the wife of Nicholas, last Tsar of Russia, by artisans of the Franklin Mint or others.
As a general rule of thumb, creations from the various "mints" that deal in collectibles are priced at the top of their value and can usually only be resold for from 1/3 to as much as 3/4 of their original price. Sometimes a very modest profit can be made but seldom.
A true Fabrege Egg would be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars but few exist outside of museum collections. I believe that fewer than 30 were made, each an exquisite work of unique art. They were birthday gifts for the Tsarina.
The copper bottom pieces are easier to make than the stainless steel ones. The stainless steel pieces actually have a copper bottom, but it's clad on the bottom and a stainless steel skin is welded over it. Notice how there is a little "pedestal" on the bottom of the stainless pieces? Yup. That's the copper insert sandwiched on the bottom. And you know the difference as far as cleaning them, yes? Copper always seems to take a little more work. But gosh, doesn't it look nice! Belgique makes some good looking pieces. Yes, indeedy. Best of luck making your choice. Bon appétit!
Peter Carl Faberge, was the official Imperial purveyor of jewels to the House of Romanov. Faberge, was commissioned by Tsar Alexander III to design a jeweled Easter egg for his Empress; Marie Feodorovna in 1892. Nicholas II continued the tradition upon his accession, giving his mother the dowager Empress Marie and his wife, Tsarina Alexandra each a Faberge egg every Easter. The design was left entirely up to Faberge and his craftsmen. Each one a masterpiece of "subtlety, elegance and restraint". Of course Faberge designed many magnificent pieces of jewelry for most of St. Petersburg society. It is his eggs that he is most remembered for however and copies from the great to the gaudy are still recognizable around the world to this day. Faberge and his workshop broke up during the revolution. His last Imperial commission was Easter 1917. Peter Carl Faberge died in Switzerland in 1921.
For thousands, even millions of years, little pieces of our earth have been eroded--broken down and worn awayby wind and water. These little bits of our earth are washed downstream where they settle to the bottom of the rivers, lakes, and oceans. Layer after layer of eroded earth is deposited on top of each. These layers are pressed down more and more through time, until the bottom layers slowly turn into rock
