Eggspensive news: Harrods window display gets egged (Fabergé egged, that is)

Third Imperial Easter Egg

If pointlessly decadent golden eggs are your thing, get yourself along to Harrods. The Knightsbridge department store has collaborated with Fabergé, to create window displays that showcase the world of the famed Russian jeweller, from its notorious Imperial Easter Eggs to today’s contemporary creations.

If you need any convincing that Fabergé is kind of a big deal in the jewellery world, consider the recent case of the pretty golden egg that went for £8,000 at a bric-a-brac sale in the USA and turned out to be a long-lost Fabergé egg with an estimated worth of £30 million. If you’re keen, you can head along and check it out at a new (and free) exhibition at Wartski in Mayfair until April 17. Jude Brosnan
