1903 The Royal Danish egg (also known as the Danish Jubilee egg) is a jewelled enameled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé for Nicholas II of Russia, who presented the egg to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. One of eight Fabergé eggs that are currently lost, it is one of two eggs whose existence is known only from a single photograph,

"The Emperor Nicholas II gave this Egg to his wife, the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna for Easter 1896. Made of rock crystal, it is surmounted by a large cabochon Siberian emerald finial. It contains a dozen miniatures with gold frames showing views of palaces in Britain, Germany as well as Russia that have a personal association with the Empress." [text from Virginia Museum of Fine Arts]

Fabergé? Perhaps. It is not one of the Imperial Eggs or any of the several Imperial quality eggs I've seen, But it does look elegant.
