This precious easter egg has been made with only the finest and most rare materials, including gold, diamonds and enamel. The dark blue exterior of the egg’s body has been enamelled using the guilloche technique, which involves applying enamel to engraved surfaces of a metal, thus giving the object a sublime textured finish. The egg is mounted with floral and rope swag decorations in gold, each of which is centred with a precious stone. The upper half of the egg is decorated with double headed Imperial eagles in white enamel, and surmounted with an Imperial crown made out of diamonds. The hinged egg opens to reveal a bouquet of flowers made from precious stones inside a white parcel gilt enamel vase. The egg is set on a square base, which is stamped with gold hallmarks.
