The outside of the egg is deep ruby-red enamel with a band of hand-set Austrian crystals encircling the egg's perimeter. Inside, the egg contains an oval of matte white with a matte yellow yolk. The yolk opens to reveal a brightly enameled hen that opens to disclose a tiny portrait of Czarevich Alexei, propped on an easel. Height 3 1/2" without stand.
