The House of Faberge and its head, Peter Carl Faberge, became widely renowned for the Easter eggs that were presented to the Russian royal family. This type of work became so popular that the jewelry workshop started producing miniature pendants and earrings in the form of Easter eggs.
The plant-themed ornamentation and opulent color of the enamel sets this trinket apart. The upper section of the pendant shows a stylized butterfly with golden wings decorated with sparkling crystals.
