A faberge. They are priceless.
Peter Carl Fabergé first designed the Faberge egg for Czar Alexander III to give to his wife
Do you really mean an egg from a bird or turtle or other creature or a Faberge egg? The natural egg came from the animals from the beginning of time. The Faberge egg was created by Faberge in France. The Tsar of Russia had many of them. They are absolutely beautiful and worth a lot of money. If you ever get a chance to see a book of them see their detail in the beautiful photos. Seeing them online does not do them justice.

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.
