Fabergé Egg Auction At Sotheby’s

From Octopussy

On this day in 1982 filming began on the Fabergé egg auction from Octopussy in which 007 shows an impressive sleight of hand. The ornate eggs were made by renowned jewellers Asprey’s of London. Production buyer Ron Quelch said: “Our sketch artist produced something very similar to the Fabergé eggs and they were reproduced by Asprey’s in a very short space of time. They were capable of withstanding very close camera work, as they had been created with such quality.”
