The egg - number 18 in a series of 19 - was sold at McTear's Auctioneeers in Glasgow last night.
It had been hoped the rare egg would sell for as much as £20,000 but the bidding failed to reach that level.
Jimmy Johnstone, known as "Jinky", was one of Celtic's greatest players and died in 2006 after battling motor neurone disease.
Faberge created 19 eggs in recognition of the number of trophies he won.
The eggs open to reveal a silver and gold figure of Jinky.
At the time of their creation Sarah Faberge was quoted as saying: "The Lord of the Wing film confirmed my respect for Jimmy Johnstone and it was a privilege to meet him in Glasgow."
Brian Clements, managing director at McTear's, said: "Not only are the Jimmy Johnstone Faberge eggs remarkable examples of high quality jewellery in their own right, they are also important pieces of football memorabilia.
"The eggs are highly sought after by collectors and it is believed a number are owned by leading figures in football.
"There was a lot of interest in this particular egg and we are delighted with the price it achieved at auction."
