1893 - Caucasus Egg

Varicolored gold garlands held by diamond bowknots mount this gold egg, overload with vibrant ruby enamel on a guilloche'undersurface. An extraordinary table-top diamond, gem-encircled, crowns the object; another completes the base.

Depicting views of mis mountain retreat high in the Caucasus where the Grand Duke Georg, younger brother of Nikolai II, because of ill health spent the greater part of his life, miniatures executed and signed by Krijitski are revealed on opening the four pearl-bordered doors around the egg. Each of these bears a diamond-set numeral of the year.
