Soccer Faberge Eggs Head To The Auction Block
The eggs were created by Sarah Faberge, the great grandaughter of Russian Imperial Jeweler Carl Faberge and go up for sale on March 1. The egg shown at right is Best's egg which shows the European Cup medal and the football League Champion's badge. The sides of the Egg are decorated with the official crest used by Manchester United in 1968 and, from the same year, the Northern Ireland official crest. Inside the egg, a figure of Best stands with a sterling and black-gold diamond studded ball at his feet. It is estimated at £20,000 to £25,000.
