Decorated Egg-Lilies of the Valley Faberge Egg
Decorated Egg- Coronation Faberge Egg
One of only two eggs executed in the Art Nouveau style, this
golden egg is covered by a multitude of pearls and is covered
with pale pink enamel. The eggs is supported by cabriole legs of
matte green-gold leaves with rose diamond dewdrops. The
gold-stemmed lilies of the valley have green enamelled leaves
and pearl flowers. The egg is surmounted by an Imperial crown
of rose diamonds and cabachon rubies.

A pearl knob, when twisted, reveals the surprise of this egg:
portrait minatures of Czar Nicholas II and his two oldest
daughters: Olga and Tatiana. The portraits are raised by a
geared mechanism inside the egg and causes the portraits to
spread fan-like once they have emerged from the egg. The
portraits are framed in rose diamonds and backed with gold
panels engraved with the presentation date: April 5, 1898.
This egg is the most popular of all the Faberge eggs. The
surface is enamelled translucent yellow applied to a golden
field of starbursts. The egg is trellised with bands of laurel
wrought from gold. Opaque, black-enamelled Imperial eagles
appear at each trellis intersection. Each eagle carries a small
diamond on its chest. The surprise in this egg is the miniature
coronation coach. The accurate and highly-detailed coach
took 15 months to fabricate. Red lacquer and upholstery of
the original coach was recreated using red enamel and the
blues of the interior were also faithfully reproduced in
enamels. The gilt coach frame was reproduced in gold, the
iron wheel rims in platinum, and glass windows in etched rock
crystal. The coach is surmounted by an Imperial crown with  
rose diamonds.

that the egg, when taken from its stand, can be
opened up to display a screen of miniatures on ivory
by Zehngraf. The miniatures portrayed the Institutions
of the Empress Marie.

the founding of St. Petersburg in 1703. Executed in gold in
the extravagant rococo style, the curves are set with The
