Fabergé Eggs on stamps (voor Nederlands klik hier)
Searching the internet for info on Fabergé, I found Fabergé Eggs on stamps!
A series of Russian poststamps, issued in 1995
The 1906 Moscow Kremlin Egg, Russia 1995
Besides Imperial Eggs, Fabergé made other Easter Eggs too. On the above Liechtenstein 2001 stamps three Eggs are shown from the collection of mr. Adulf Peter Goop, owner of the Kelch Apple Blossom Egg. Visit the website to see some magnificent First Day Covers!
In 1988 Finland hosted an international stamp exhibition from June 1 to 12 in Helsinki. Its special stamp issued honors Agathon Faberge.
Agathon Faberge was the grandson of the founder of the House of Fabergé. His appreciation for objects d'art extended to rugs, china, jade, vases, engravings, goblets and stamps. The later interest is captured on the above sheetlet from Finland which shows a likeness of Agathon Faberge and stamps from his famous collection. (Source image Ebay)

And these, the two with the Kelch Appleblossom Egg here below, I bought in Vaduz Liechtenstein when I was there in 2011 to finally see the Egg. What a beauty that Egg is! The stamps are stamped with the date 14 March 2011.
Update 2016. As there are now so many countries issuing stamps with Fabergé Eggs, and there are even countries where you can make your own custom poststamps by using your own images (Netherlands, Austria), this page will no longer be updated.
Just Google-image-search for "Faberge Eggs on Stamps" and you will find all the stamps there are! For now a last one because I like it sooooo much! With thanks to Claudia from Germany!
Deze pagina wordt niet langer geupdate omdat het nu ook mogelijk is om persoonlijke postzegels te maken, onder andere in Oostenrijk en Nederland. Je kunt de zegels zien die ik zelf heb gemaakt bij Post.nl!
Als afsluiter van deze pagina een postzegel uit Burundi omdat ik die zo prachtig mooi vind!
