Up for your consideration today is a very rare & retired collection of miniature fruit trees issued by THE HOUSE OF FABERGE and THE FRANKLIN MINT, back in 1991. These equisite trees were sold through a private subscription and invitation only at that time and are a limited edition.

The Faberge tradition dates back to 1870 and to the famous goldsmith and jeweler to the Royal European Courts-Peter Carl Faberge. It was his grand vision to create opulent treasures with precious materials, called, "objets de fantasie". Captivating jeweled creations that set imaginations afire and made eyes dazzle with wonder and amazement. Each one unique and precious, crafted solely upon individual commission.

Each tree has been designed by Igor Carl Faberge, the grandson of Peter Carl Faberge. The 'TSARINAS TREE COLLECTION" are each very delicate and very rare. Commissioned in 1991 by the Franklin Mint with the base hallmarked with the Igor Carl Faberge monogram & FM (Franklin Mint).

Each piece is a work of art & is crafted in the exotic tradition of cloisonne and is hand- painted with accents of 24K gold. Additionally, each comes with a Romance card with inscription and history of the piece. (Note: T is one romance card-the Pommegranite tree that is missing)
