The Orange Tree (Bay Tree) Egg
A Faberge Imperial Easter Egg presented by Tsar Nicholas II to his mother the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna at Easter 1911. "Faberge, who had traveled a lot, had absorbed all the currents, the various artistic currents, in Paris, in Florence, in Dresden, in London," says Von Habsburg. "He could go back to this memory bank and select objects from it. For instance, the Bay Tree egg in the Forbes Magazine Collection is based on an 18th century mechanical orange tree, a French automaton, which was a fairly well-known object which Faberge must have seen during his travels. Other eggs that Faberge made were based on objects he saw in the imperial treasury and used as prototypes for his first eggs." The eleven-inch Bay Tree egg (1911), laden with gemstone fruits set among carved jade leaves, conceals tiny bellows to produce the sweet song of a feathered bird. "When you turn one of the little precious fruits, these jade leaves part and a small bird appears and sings and then disappears back into this little tree which is all of about 11 inches high!" (Forbes)
