By Brenda Goh LONDON (Reuters) - A Fabergé Imperial Easter Egg made for Emperor Alexander III of Russia and not seen in public for more than a century will go on show in London after being saved from the melting pot by an American scrap dealer who only accidentally realised its value. The Lost Third Imperial Easter Egg was made by Peter Carl Fabergé as a gift for Empress Maria Feodorovna for Easter 1887. Unable to find a buyer, he searched the Internet and realised that he may have found Empress Maria Feodorovna's lost Easter egg.
