A robbery was committed in the house of the general director of a construction company on Rublevsky highway. Jewelry for $ 1 million, including the Faberge egg, became the booty of criminals.
The stolen jewelry egg is the work of the famous Russian master of the late XIX - early XX century Carl Faberge. The applicant estimated the price of an egg at $ 550 thousand.
However, experts on the antiques market from the Anti-theft Antiques and Historical Values Department at MUR questioned the authenticity of the stolen value. As one of the department’s staff said, 71 eggs were created, which the master created between 1884 and 1917. The main part of the precious eggs is on the territory of Russia - 29 pieces. Of these, half belong to state museums, and half to a billionaire.
