The Kelch Rocaille Egg

This is my last egg for this Easter series. The Kelch Rocaille Egg by Fabergé is made of varicolored gold, platinum, rose cut diamonds, translucent green enamel and silk lining. The heart surprise is made of gold, rose-cut diamonds, rose and white enamel. Made in 1902, Alexander Kelch gave the Faberge "Kelch Rocaille Egg'' to his wife, Barbara, but paid for it with her money. This is the fifth in a series of seven eggs made for the industrialist Alexander Kelch.
