The House of Faberge made jeweled and/or enameled eggs, mostly miniature, that were given as gifts at Easter. The most famous were the larger ones made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia (known as the "Imperial" Faberge eggs). About 42 of the 50 eggs known to have been made have survived.

Hi Natasha, and thank you so much for your lovely comment, and for the Klimt comparison, which means a lot to me as he is my favorite artist.

This is absolutely stunning! -- So rich and luxurious.
Hi Justin, thanks for the compliment and your questions and I've messaged you some answers separately.
Posted almost 3 years ago.
My name is Justin Orlick and I am a fashion designer. I have ordered a test swatch and I am considering incorporating this design into my upcoming collection. I have a few questions, 1) How well does it print on the organic fabrics 2) Which organic fabric would you recommend and 3) If I needed to bulk order, let's say 20 - 40 yards, is there a professional or wholesale discount on the per yard cost? We do have our EIN number. Thanks, and absolutely LOVE it!
Thanks for that feedback Sue Ellen - now I wish I had tried it on cotton sateen as well... there's always something else to do eh?
Oh, the silk handled those 'difficult' colors quite well, too! So, now there is yet another way to enjoy and use this lovely design.
Printed on cotton-silk (daylight photo).

Thanks for the great comment Lee Anne, much appreciated!
This is different and colorful!
Thanks Joan and Robin for the compliments and the great idea re the performance knit. I'm keen to try some other designs on this fabric now, have been so impressed with how it handles some of the more 'difficult' colors...
The Faberge Eggs design is absolutely gorgeous!!!
That performance knit would make a pretty wrap dress in this design.............
Trying this again: Printed on the new performance knit - pretty impressive, especially with these challenging colors. The proofing swatch on cotton was pretty good too though (third thumbnail).
Thanks for your great feedback Crystal!
cool design! Love the color and technique!
Sabine, thanks for your nice comment on this one!

Thanks so much for the 'favor' Marian - very glad you found and like this!
I can't believe I hadn't favorited this before. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks so much Charlotte for your wonderful appreciation!

OMG, this is absolutely fabulous
Thanks very much vicki (I hope that is right as I saw that your name was all in lower case, while Birmingham had a capital?) for your lovely comment, and thanks Joan for letting me know it "flashed by" (too quick for me)
Just saw this one the Main Shop Page, under the Decals section!
Really beautiful Su - sumptuous colours :-)
It looks a bit washed out in this picture but I think that may be too much light bouncing around from a flash as my swatch (which I received only days ago) shows it printed much better, in my view. Still very grateful to Spoonflower for printing the fabric!
Not quite as bright as the design image but I am pretty impressed with this print on basic combed cotton. Showing part-design only - center part just down from the top in the swatch view.
Thank you Emma for your wonderful comment, I was so pleased that this came in the Top Ten, and the so-supportive comments bu other designers have truly warmed my heart!

Beautiful jewel colours and shimmering patterns on the eggs remind me of silk wrapped eggs, stunning design :)
Beautiful! The metallic sheen to these eggs is amazing!
The swirls make me think of Van Gogh's Starry Night- beautiful!
Beautiful. I have friend who makes hand dyed silks that look just like these eggs.
Thank Caitie for your lovely comment - much appreciated!
Thanks for the palazzo pants suggestion Joan! Then all I'd need would be the palazzo to wear them on...
Palazzo pants would be very snazzy!
Wow! Thank you all so very much for your wonderful comments Linda, Melanie, Sigrid, Angela, Penny and Sannie - and for the "Fab(erge)ulous" pun Sigrid!! So very much appreciated!
Smashing! Love the richness of it.
Fab(erge)ulous. Good luck!
This is fabulous Su! So rich!
JUST LOVELY! The swirling texture and vibrant colors really speak to my soul!
Really appreciate the great feedback and comments Candy, Vo, Melanie and Isabella... and your fun pun Candy!! Thank you all so much!
Thanks so much Gail for your lovely comment and the great idea - I will definitely follow that up!
Wow Su, these are egg-squisite!!
Very, very rich and full of depth!
Beautiful design Su, has such a richness to it, very elegant!
Oh, how gorgeous! I love the rich colours and brilliance of this.
Gorgeous colours! It does somehow manage to glow on screen. Turned the other way up it could make stunning dragon scales too!
Thanks for the great comments Tina and Sarah, wish I had some real FabergÃ© eggs - I guess fabric ones might be the next best thing!
Love this! I've been working on a marbled paper series and these patterns have so much in common with what I find charming in the swirled, unexpected palettes! Good luck!
This looks so elegant! It's amazing the glow it has!
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments and great feedback, a great way to start the day and very much appreciated!
These eggs could be made of gemstones, with their marvelous swirls and color variations! My father had friends who made eggs and spheres out of gemstones and I have several, though not enough to make such a beautiful array as this one. This is simply gorgeous in the yardage view! I hope you are planning on printing this on the CdC and making one of your scarf/shawls!
oh, lovely! what a great use of your oil-paint swirl design, they look beautiful and you get to have so many colorways together - really rich!
Oh, this is beautiful, Su. It really is breathtaking. This design caught my eye when I first logged on to Spoonflower this morning.
Stately eggs with rich colors.
There is a treasury of gloriously coloured, richly textured, detail in your beautifully decorated eggs Su!
