If you are new to the Perchin story, allow me a moment for this abbreviated version:
The first Fabergé Easter Egg was made in 1885 by Michel Perchin, (Mikhail Perikhin).In 1886, at the age of 26, this skilled craftsman, a self-taught goldsmith from a peasant background in the town of PctorvskiyZavod, became chief foreman of the Fabergé firm.Until his death in 1903, his initials were put on all surprise eggs of the firm made for Emperors Alexander III and Nicholas II.The first egg made by Perchin, (Perikhin), consisted of an ivory shell with stripes of dark blue enamel; in the shell there was a golden-with-enamel hen with ruby eyes. Inside the hen, there was a golden crown inlaid with pearl. And inside the crown there was a golden ring.It was precisely in 1885 that the tradition of annually giving Fabergé Easter eggs was born.Subsequently, Michel Perchin, Inc., borrowed from the designs of the original Faberge Eggs to create a unique line of extremely limited edition writing instruments.
