Russian Empress Valentina Faberge-Style Collectible Enameled Egg. Ornate jeweler-style, museum-quality, enameled eggs like these were first made famous by Peter Carl Faberge in the 19th century. Empress Galina is an almost foot-tall beauty balancing an ornate, royal elephant, and Empress Valentina is topped witha tiny crown. Both are cast in metal alloy using the ancient lost wax method before the brilliant enamel, faux jewels, and tiny embellishments are added. Both open to hold your tiny treasures!
