History: The egg was crafted and delivered in 1887 to the then Tsar of Russia, Alexander III. It is currently owned by Prince Albert II, and is held in Monaco. It stands on a base of gold that is painted in opalescent white enamel. The three panels of the base feature motifs of raised gold in four colors, representing the arts and sciences. A serpent, set with diamonds, coils around the stand connecting the base to the egg and up toward the center of the egg.The serpent's head and tongue point to the hour which is indicated in roman numerals on a white band which runs around the egg near the top.
The Egg was presented to Maria Feodorovna by Tsar Alexander III on Easter day, April 5, 1887. It is possible that by this time, the egg gift was already an established tradition, allowing Carl Peter Faberge and his craftsmen an entire year to craft the next egg.This would explain in part why this egg is so much more elaborate than the first Imperial Easter egg. The egg was housed in the Anichkov Palace until the 1917 revolution.

Reviewer: R. Loggins from Dallas, Texas  
After seeing my latest Faberge Egg purchase from you, my friends want me to be sure that I have their name spelled correctly in my will.  Do I need to say more?  I look forward to my next purchase from your company.

This piece was much better than I anticipated. The Blue version offers a stunning sapphire translucence and the egg sparkles from every angle.
