A Fabergé egg that almost no one knew existed... The Rothschild Fabergé Egg

From the minute I saw the Rothschild Fabergé Egg for the first time on October 4, 2007 on the Christie's website, it reminded me of the Kelch Chanticleer Egg. Just for fun I put them together on this page. The two could be borther and sister!

A very interesting article about the Rothschild Egg is written by Kieran McCarthy of Wartski in London and can be found on the Fabergé Research Site, Recent Discoveries.
