A previously unrecorded Faberge egg has been rediscovered. It's a well known fact that when a previously unknown, but highly collectible, piece of art shows up, the art world gets out their checkbooks. An engagement gift to Baron Edouard de Rothschild, the egg has a clock with a diamond set cockerel that pops up and flaps its wings every hour. Christie's estimates the Faberge egg will bring upwards of $18 million, almost double the $9.6 million set by the Imperial Winter Egg sold by Christie's in New York in 2002.

Faberge Eggs represent opulence and rarity that is unmatched in the art world. Stats for The Value of Rediscovered Art Trending: Older & Chilly
