This jeweled rock crystal egg was made by Faberge in 1909 for Czar Nicholas II of Russia as an Easter present for the Tzarina. It is decorated with gold, lapis lazuli, pearls, diamonds and enamel.

Inside the egg is a removable model of the Standart Yacht, made of gold and platinum, which rests on a bed of carved crystal.

The Standart Yacht served as the Russian Imperial Family’s floating palace during their Baltic Sea vacations and was the largest yacht in the world when she was launched in 1896.
