Alexander Palace Egg

Alexander Palace, situated within the Palace & Park ensemble of Tsarkoye Selo, is one the summer residences from the Romanov era. Poignantly, it was from here that Nicholas II and his family departed on their final tragic journey to Yekaterinburg.

On the exterior of the Egg, Alexander Palace rises from the mist. The Palace and surrounding parks have been hand painted on fine lead crystal, showing the summer residence as it was in the last days of the Czars. The egg sits upon a base ornamentally turned on Theo's 1861 Holtzapffel lathe.

Alexander Palace Egg Surprise

On the reverse of the Egg, looking beyond the lake, the surprise is the cypher of Alexander appearing mystically above the water.
