A very pretty small silver and enamel egg that was made in Russia circa 1900-1910. The Russian Easter egg tradition dates back to pre-Christian times when people saw eggs as fertility symbols and as symbols of protection. Eggs represented renewal or new life. When Russian Orthodoxy was adopted, eggs took on Christian symbolism. This little egg can be worn on a chain with other eggs interspersed.
