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 egg was made circa 100-1910 and is silver with an applied enamel decoration and the cyrillic letters “XB” for “Happy Easter”. These eggs are lovely to collect and wear on a chain spaced at intervals.
