The Imperial Napoleonic Miniature Egg (No13 of 25). A one inch high replica of the Napoleonic Egg, designed to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Borodino in which the Russian Armies defeated Napoleon in the war of 1812. The exterior of the miniature Egg is exactly as the original Imperial Egg, Russian Military Insignias and the Romanov Double Eagle are featured in the central panels. However, the surprise in the miniature Egg is a tiny Eagle poised with outspread wings. Because of the size of the Egg the multiple frames of the original surprise were not possible.
The Imperial Napoleonic Egg was given by Nicholas to his Mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Fedorovna, for Easter in 1912. The miniature replica sits on a stand of Siberian Jade with a pedestal base of enamel guilloché matching the Egg. The Egg is cradled in the stand when it is not being worn.
The Egg has a tiny replica of the Imperial Crown at its apex and a tiny bale pierces this to make the Egg wearable. It weighs 1 point 1 ounces not including the stand. Signed with FABERGE hallmark in.925 silver, Russian Imperial Eagle hallmark, hand-numbered #13. This egg is limited to 25 pieces worldwide. This egg is number 13 and comes with C.
