Quadricentenary Egg

The Romanov Quadricentenary Egg celebrates the 400th anniversary of the House of Romanov, which had been founded by Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov in 1613.

The Egg is adorned with eighteen miniature decorations depicting the eighteen Romanov Tsars.

The shell is created in solid sterling silver with sapphire blue royal guilloché enamel and 18-karat gold.

The finial of the Egg is based on the double-headed Romanov eagle but is, in fact, a triple-headed eagle so that when viewed from any angle, it appears as the double-headed eagle.

The base, ornamentally turned on Theo Fabergé´s Holtzapfel lathe from 1860, again celebrates the eighteen Romanov Tsars with eighteen deep cuts and covered with 24-karat gold.
