The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt is now underway in London. It started on 21 February 2012 and will end on 3 April 2012.
During this time, the streets of central London will host the largest and most interactive egg hunt the city has ever seen. In excess of 200 eggs, each around 2½ foot in height and designed and decorated by designers and artists, will be ‘hidden’ around central London. Each egg holds a unique code word which, when texted to the number provided via SMS, provides one entry to win the prize, the Diamond Jubilee Egg by Fabergé (on display at the Fabergé store at 14A Grafton Street, W1S 4ET). Each additional code word submitted provides a further entry, increasing the chances of winning the Diamond Jubilee Egg. Charges apply to each text message, with the net proceeds going to the two charities. The first SMS is £3 plus applicable network rates, and any subsequent texts are 25p plus applicable network rates.
Fabergé has also specially created ‘Le Collier Plume d’Or’ – a magnificent one of a kind emerald and gold pendant, crafted around a ravishing emerald cabochon of 127.76 carats, and which will be auctioned for charity on 20 March 2012. To place an advance bid, click here.
The hunt celebrates and explores the exhilarating creative talent of a myriad of artistic disciplines ranging from architects to product designers, fashion houses to jewellery designers and artists to artisans. Participating artists and designers include Sir Peter Blake, Candy & Candy, the Chapman Brothers, Theo Fennell, Zaha Hadid, Nicky Haslam, Mulberry, Gordon Murray, Bruce Oldfield, Robinson Pelham, Marc Quinn, Sir Ridley Scott and Dianne von Furstenberg.
Each of these works of art is being sold by auction to raise funds for the charities. Click here to bid.
