Fifteenth Anniversary (Fabergé egg)

The Fifteenth Anniversary egg (also known as the Love Trophies egg) is an Imperial Fabergé egg, one of a series of fifty-four jewelled enameled Easter eggs made under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé for the Russian Imperial family.

It was an Easter 1911 gift for Tsaritsa Alexandra Feodorovna from her husband Tsar Nicholas II, who had a standing order of two Fabergé Easter eggs every year, one for his mother and one for his wife.

Its 1911 counterpart presented to the Dowager Empress is the Bay Tree egg.


The egg is made of gold, green and white enamel, decorated with diamonds and rock crystal. The surface is divided into eighteen panels set with 16 miniatures.

The egg's design commemorates the fifteenth anniversary of the coronation of Nicholas II on 26 May 1896.

There is no "surprise" in the egg.


It was owned by Malcolm Forbes in the Forbes Collection. Viktor Vekselberg purchased nine Imperial eggs, as part of the collection, for almost $100 million.[1] The egg is now part of the Victor Vekselberg Collection, owned by The Link of Times Foundation and housed in the Fabergé Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
