THE FABERGÉ BIG EGG HUNT AUCTION
Tom Parker Bowles, Richard Caring, James Caan and artists Marc Quinn, Polly Morgan and Nicky Haslam, were amongst the supporters who turned out in force on Tuesday 20th March for The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt Banquet at The Royal Courts of Justice. Thirty uniquely designed eggs from The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt were put up for auction raising over £667,000 for charity with proceeds going towards Elephant Family and Action for Children. The eggs, designed by artists such as Marc Quinn, Mary Katrantzou and Sir Peter Blake, were auctioned by Henry Wyndham of Sotheby’s. Designs sold on the night included a Humpty Dumpty egg signed by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and created by The Prince’s Drawing School which achieved £51,000, the Letter Box egg by artist Benjamin Shine, for £42,000, and Marc Quinn’s simply entitled ‘Egg’, for £40,000. Zaha Hadid’s ‘Dichotomy’ fetched £45,000, whilst Jane Morgan’s ‘A Penny For Your Thoughts’ reached £30,000 on the night.
