1898 - Lilies-of-the-Valley Egg

Gold egg enamelled translucent rose on a guilloche field and supported on four dull green gold cabriolet legs composed of overlapping leaves veined with rose diamonds. The egg is surmounted by a rose diamond and cabochon ruby Imperial Crown set with two bows and quartered by four lines of rose diamonds and decorated with lilies-of-the-valley in pearls and rose diamonds.

The surprise consists of three oval miniatures of Nicholas II in military uniform, and the Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana, his first two children, within rose diamond borders which rise out of the top of the egg.
