Moreover, it is a story that mirrors the history of 20th-century Russia – a satisfying arc that sees eggs made for the tsars, sold by Stalin, bought by Americans and now, finally, returned to post-communist Russia. There is also an intriguing element of mystery surrounding the masterpieces. Of the 50 "Tsar Imperial" eggs known to have been made, eight are currently unaccounted for, providing endless scope for speculation and forgeries.
This is the first book to tell the complete history of the eggs, encompassing the love and opulence in which they were conceived, the war and revolution that scattered them, and the collectors who preserved them.
