History: Carved from a block of milky agate, mounted on a gold enameled base, egg was closely modeled after an seventeenth-century box by Le Roy, Germany. A highly intriguing hypothesis has recently been advanced by Christopher Forbes, namely that the Resurrection Egg is in fact the surprise originally contained in the Renaissance Egg. This would account for its being shown in the same showcase at the 1902 exhibition, where surprises have been separated from their eggs. Moreover, style and coloring of both objects are virtually identical and the size of the Resurrection Egg perfectly fits the curvature of the egg.
1930 one of the ten Imperial Eggs sold by the Antikvariat in Moscow to the Hammer Galleries, New York. 1965 Sold by A La Vieille Russie, to Malcolm Forbes, the Forbes Magazine Collection, New York.
