It is not known when or how the Tsar ordered the Easter egg from Faberge, but the Blue Serpent Clock Egg was presented to Maria Feodorovna by Tsar Nicholas II on Easter day, 1895. The egg was housed in the Anichkov Palace until the 1917 revolution. Between 1922 and 1950, the egg was bought by Emanuel Snowman of Wartski, sold, and bought back by Wartski. The egg was sold again by Wartski on Christmas Eve 1972 to Stavros Niarchos for £64,103. It was then given in 1974 to Prince Rainier III of Monaco to honor his Silver Jubilee. The Prince was unaware of its imperial provenance until it was lent to an exhibition. Following the death of Rainier III in 2005, it was inherited by his son, Prince Albert II. This Blue Serpent Clock Egg was long thought to be the 1887 Easter egg. However, recent research (2008-2014) has conclusively proved the egg to be that of 1895. Faberge created a very similar egg in 1902, the Duchess of Marlborough Egg for Consuelo Vanderbilt. That clock egg is larger than the Blue Serpent Clock Egg and is enameled in a pink color, rather than in blue.
