Va (AP) Three quarters of a century ago given the right circumstances, you could have given your wife an elaborately decorated Easter egg containing a surprise which she could see by pressing a huge emerald button But the circumstances had to be right You had to be emperor and autocrat of all the Russias and thus dispenser of the incalculable wealth which the imperial enjoyed Blessed with that title and that wealth you would have received a flawlessly crafted egg trom the House of Peter Carl Faberge perhaps the most celebrated goldsmith since Benvenuto Cellini Faberge s artistic empire collapsed 57 years ago along with the reign of Russia s czars But many of his eggs survive Five are on display at the Virginia Museum here Besides the pncelss Easter eggs from the imperial court, the collection includes dozens of small ones, pendants, picture frames, flowers, icons jewelry and other objects It came to the museum 27 years ago in a station wagon, escorted by two gallery officials carrying sidearms, and is on permanent display in a mezzanine gallery The collection was a bequest from the wife of a General Motors vice- president She apparently started it on a whim Lillian Thomas Pratt had not been a serious art collector, but in the 1930's she purchased most of the works from the Hammer Gallery m New York on the advice of Victor Hammer He is the brother of Dr Armand Hammer, president of Occidental Petroleum Corp Dr Hammer has maintained close ties with Moscow for years as an art collector and petroleum executive The five imperial eggs which Mrs Pratt willed to the Virginia Museum before her death m 1947 are part of Faberge's total production of 56 to 58 Forty-five are known still to exist The eggs are the ultimate in the jeweler's art, with elaborate wrought gold, enamels, miniature portratis, diamonds and other gems such as lapis lazuli, emeralds, sapphires and rock crystals Several contain intricate gaddetry It was the custom at Easter to exchange Easter eggs, telling the recipient, "Christ is risen And at the Russian court, the egg often contained a surprise The earliest imperial one in the Virginia collection was presented to Czarina Alexandra Feodrovna by her husband, Nicholas II. m 1896 THE BETTER HALF Three years in the making, it is a rock crystal egg 10- mches high and four in diameter The two halves are held together with a vertical band set with scores of small diamonds Inside are a dozen miniature paintings The paintings revolve around the gold axis of the egg At the apex is a 27-karat emerald the size of a robin's egg When depressed, it engages a hook at the top of the pictures, when the emerald is twisted the miniature pictures revolve on the axis and a new one is diclosed to view It may well be the world's most expensive push button Faberge, the man who created the eggs, fled Russia at the time of the 1917 revolution and died in Switzerland in 1920 He concentrated on over all design and left the details to trained employees A stickler for perfection Faberge is said to have kept a sledge at his desk with which to smash to pieces any artistic creation which failed'to satisfy him Athletic abilities debated NEW HAVEN (AP) A would-be little- leaguer argued with her older brother outside fedeial court as lawyers inside debated the athletic abilities of girls Howard Needle, 12, a live-year Little League veteran in Fairfield, was asked in the court corridor what he thought ol his sister as a ballplayer She s not bad for her age he said Then Melissa Needle 9 who would like to pitch and play shortstop along with the boys, was asked what she thought of Howard s baseball ability He stinks she declared unhesitantly Melissa and her mothei have sued the Fan field Little League Inc claiming sex discrimination has kept the from playing in the all-boy league I!
