A gold-mounted enamel miniature Easter egg Faberge, workmaster A. Nevalainen, St Petersburg, 1896-1908 decorated in alternating horizontal bands of translucent blue and yellow enamel over an engine-turned ground height 1.7 cm, Kin The combination of yellow and blue bands recall the Rothschild racing colours, however the present yellow is paler than that found on other objects by Faberge which incorporated the colours. For a table cigarette box decorated with the Rothschild racing colours, see G. von Habsburg & A. von Solodkoff, Faberge, London, 1979, pl.152.
