The prototype for this exquisite egg was created in 1907 as the Easter gift from Nicholas II to his wife, Alexandra Fyodorovna. Originally the surprise concealed in the egg was a medallion with a portrait of Tsarevich Alexei. Unfortunately the medallion was later lost. The original egg with lattice-work and roses is in the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
