    Egg History:
    The Colonnade egg is a jeweled enameled Easter egg made under the supervision of Peter Carl Faberge.
    The egg was made for Nicholas II of Russia, who presented it to his wife, Alexandra Feodorovna upon the birth of their only son, the Tsarevich Alexei.
    The Colonnade Egg features a rotary clock made by the Swiss firm. The egg symbolizes a temple of love. A pair of platinum doves represent the love of Nicholas and Alexandra. Four silver-gilt cherubs sit around the base of the egg, each representing Nicholas and Alexandra's four daughters: Anastasia, Olga, Maria, and Tatiana. Alexei is represented by a silver-gilt cupid, which surmounts the egg.
    The Cupid is now missing a silver-gilt staff or twig which was held in his right hand and was used to indicate the hour.
    The Colonnade Egg was presented to Alexandra at Eastertide 1910 to celebrate the 1904 birth of Alexei, the only son of Nicholas and Alexandra. 
    Upon the imprisonment of the Royal family in 1917, the Colonnade Egg was confiscated by the provisional government. In 1927 the Colonnade Egg was sold as one of nine eggs to antique dealer Wartski. Two years later it was sold to Queen Mary of Teck and inherited by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. It remains in the Royal Collection.
    From July to October 2011, the Colonnade Egg was featured in the Royal Faberge exhibition during the summer opening of Buckingham Palace.
