Russian Imperial Eagle Egg Necklace by Marie Betteley
This beautiful Easter egg necklace is designed as a classic link chain suspending nine hand painted egg pendants from St. Petersburg, Russia. In colorful porcelain depicting a Romanov double-headed eagle-symbol of Imperial Russia, a pine cone in cobalt blue, and a landscape of Russian churches, a deck of playing cards, a Malevich inspired egg among others of mostly foliate, anchor or Old Russian strap-work design, each egg may be detached from its spring ring and worn separately on a chain.
By Marie Betteley, contemporary. 21 in. (53.3 cm.) long.
