The eggs weigh about 100kg and pay homage to the bejewelled 19th century designs given as gifts by the Russian Tsars to their wives and mothers.

Handcrafted by the firm Choccywoccydoodah, the Easter eggs are made entirely out of luxury Belgian chocolate, and come in a trio – each showing a stage of the mythical creatures hatching.

One design even pays tribute to Brighton’s Royal Pavillion, where the company’s chocolate studio is based.
SWNS_FABERGE_EASTER_02Christine Taylor, the owner and creative director of Choccywoccydoodah, said she hoped the “ridiculous, indulgent” eggs would bring some light to the world.

Christine said: “We all felt within the company that the world felt in quite a dark place. And as we are in such a joyous environment we consider ourselves to be joymakers.

“We thought we would do something completely ridiculous in an effort to cheer people up.

“I have always loved the actual Faberge eggs and i have always thought what a ridiculous thing they are – what an indulgent piece of nonsense.

“They were always in difficult times and i thought that is where we need to go – something joyous and not taken too seriously. Let’s bring everything together.”

Prospective buyers are expected to be wealthy London clients, or even members of overseas royal families.

Customers will have to give at least three weeks’ notice to order their own.

“But there are people who will set their hearts on them and want to order them. we do have customers who will spend that money if they want it enough.”

She added: “We are lucky. we have got customers from the Middle East who I would be surprised if they were not attracted to them.

“If somebody wanted to go ahead and order a trio, we would work out what is right for them.

“We are sort of teasing the world. You can have them if you want them.”

The unicorn eggs are on display in the Brighton shop, while the dragons are on show in the London store.
