Does anyone read Russian to tell me what this label is saying?  It is on a lovely little engraved and gilded Russian egg.

Thanks!

MODIFIED:  I've got the middle bit, K Faberge St Petersburg.... anyone seen a Faberge label to know roughly how old this might be?
Thank you very much!

Looks a bit like the one in this thread. I can't see the letters clearly enough to try transliterating

Thanks!  It does indeed look like those ones, but the labels for the modern pieces have English on them as well as the Cyrillic. So either this is a bit older, or made for the Russian market I suppose?

I have loaded it to my website where it is a bit bigger, and I've played around with the contrast so see if this helps at all.

These are modern coloured glass items in the style of Faberge eggs, usually with gold decoration (sometimes [or always??] 22ct gold) filling the engraved parts. I think they are all hollow, too.

Lots of them about.

Cheapest range seems to be via eBay where presumably bulk stocks have been purchased for resale. A couple of other (and more expensive) sources are:
http://russian-crafts.com/eggs/crystal.html
http://www.rus-sell.com/faberge/catalog11.html

For what they are, they are well made decorative items.

I wouldn't regard any of the labels on these pieces as other than generic.

Hi Kev, I have no problem if the egg is modern, but all the labels that are shown for the ones on ebay or elsewhere (and believe me, I've looked a lot of eggy labels today...) all have some English on them and often state "Modern" also in English. 

My label has no English on it anywhere, so I would assume it was made for the local market?  If so, what does it say?

Thank you very much!

Yes, I'd agree that it is likely to be a Russian-market item.

Unfortunately I don't know Russian and can only look at the basic "translation" of the alphabet as in my dictionaries ... which does seem to give "Rossiya" (phonetically speaking) at the base of the label. I have no idea what "Izgoyovreno" (or whatever) means, and it's just the same with the "lo mogivam" part (again if that's what it really is).

Oh, I wonder what they mean by selected by motif? 

Oh what the heck, I'll just list it as a Russian egg and caveat emptor....

Thank you very much!
