The Trylystok Clover Faberge Egg Amulet

CAD $135.00

The clover or trylystok (three-leaf), with its characteristic shape, is commonly found on pysanky.  It is most commonly seen on pysanky from the Poltava and Middle Dnipro regions, where it is called the trylystok believed to be inviting of luck and prosperity to the home and are also alleged to offer magical protection, and ward off bad luck.

Different regions re-interpreted the old symbols in different ways. A trident/lotus motif became a bear or cat paw, a chicken, duck, magpie or goose foot, or a three-leafed plant (clover, “trylyst”). Bears were the most worshipped animals of Ancient Slavs. During pagan times, it was associated with the god Volos, the patron of domestic animals. Slavic folklore describes the bear as a totem personifying a male: father, husband, or a fiancé. Legends about turnskin bears appeared, it was believed that humans could be turned into bears for misbehavior.

Originally a Fabergé egg (Russian: яйцо Фаберже́, yaytso Faberzhe) is a jewelled egg created by the jewellery firm House of Fabergé, in Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire. Possibly as many as 69 were created, of which 57 survive today. Virtually all were manufactured under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. The most famous are his 52 “Imperial” eggs, 46 of which survive, made for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers.

This magical little egg is hand made and features Swarovski crystals with traditional Fabergé style enamel. It opens to reveal a tiny little trylystok hidden inside, offering you luck and prosperity from within its depths.
