The Meissen Egg from Fabergé plays Boccherini's
minuet from the string quartet op. 13, no. 5.

Fabergé gems on view

Archduke Geza von Habsburg, special envoy from Fabergé, will be previewing a special collection of Fabergé jewelry and eggs noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Neiman Marcus.

An expert on the House of Faberge, the archduke will also be personalizing copies of his book, "Fabergé, Imperial Craftsman and His World" on Saturday.

Known for its world class design and workmanship, the House of Fabergé was established by Carl Fabergé. On display during the show, will be the Meissen Egg, one of only three in the world. This outstanding and elaborate piece of art will be available for sale, that is, if you've got $109,000

The egg is hand-engraved and features a miniature garden with a fountain pavilion with trees bearing Nephrite jade leaves, and lawns and paths of colored enamel on 18K yellow gold.

The egg is the symbol of life. In Orthodox Russia, where Easter is the highest holiday, giving artistically decorated eggs became a tradition. The Fabergé egg tradition began in 1885 when Czar Alexander III asked the jeweler to create one for his wife. Over the years, 50 of the little treasures were created for the Romanov family.

For information, call 948-4339.
