Fabergé Friday

The next Fabergé egg in line is one we don't have much information about. It's name is the "Bonbonnière Egg", and it was made in 1900!

This egg, which have the same name as one of the Kelch family's eggs, is silvered gilt and enameled in translucent white. It is also decorated with gold laurel swags, gold bows, diamonds, and rubies. The egg is less than 2 inches (5 cm) long, and could possibly have been used as a container for candies. 

This is the only picture I could find of it, and there is no information about it's current whereabouts. But as one of my most faithful followers, and commenters, is a very dreamy person, who I know could come up with the most amazing story about what happened to this egg, I dedicate this one to her - Ms. Dainty  Doll of the two very readable blogs The Dainty Dolls House and La Femme Nouvelle!
