The Drents Museum in Assen currently also exhibits a collection of beautiful and very valuable Russian eggs, that are on loan from the Landesmuseum in Liechtenstein. The highlight is this 'Apple Blossom egg' by Fabergé from 1901. The materials used are gold, diamond, enamel, and a mineral called nephrite. Beautiful, isn't it?
The total collection in this room consists of hundreds of unique eggs. They tell the story of the bewitching court culture in pre-war Russia and the artistic refinery and blossoming of the applied arts at that time. Hurry if you want to see them as the exhibition closes at the end of February!
The glass showcases in which the eggs were put gave a nice reflection, both of the eggs as well as of the lights. I'm linking this last photo to Weekend Reflections.
