Imperial Coronation Egg ca.1897 PDF Print E-mail

This is truly one of the most fanciful and well known of all the 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 enamelled a lustrous translucent yellow on an engraved starburst field trellised with bands of laurel.  Black enamelled double-headed eagles of the Romanov family crest, set with crystals are perched at each intersection.  The colour of the egg is taken from the gold ermine-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.
