Click to enlargeOne of the most fanciful and well-known of all of the Faberge Imperial Eggs. Given by Czar Nicholas II to Empress Alexandra Fedorovna in 1897, on the first easter following their coronation, this egg is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The egg itself is enameled a lustrous translucent yellow on an engraved starburst field trellised with bands of laurel. Black enameled doubled-headed eagles of the Romanov family crest, set with crystal are perched at each intersection. The color of the egg is taken from the gold engine-trimmed robes worn by Their Imperial Majesties to their coronation. The surprise inside the egg is a replica of the Imperial Coronation coach in which the Empress rode to the ceremony. Height 5" without stand.
