The original egg was presented by Czar Alexander III to his wife to mark their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary in 1892. The egg, which opens horizontally,   is divided into six panels by rows of rose-cut diamonds subtly graduated in size. The background is a luminous blue enamel overlaid with delicate scrollwork in red gold.

The TBI Monogram Egg
TBI's carefully designed, top quality tin egg is inspired by the priceless original of Carl Fabergé. It measures 69mm wide by 110mm in length.

TBI's designers have patterned the inside of the egg with an authentic velvety red background and gold trellis overlay, in keeping with the originals, but without attempting to reproduce their wonderful suprise interiors
