The top slides out to expose a triple round picture frame and has a magnetic closure to keep the box securely shut. Egg History: This Imperial Easter egg presented by Emperor Nicholas II to his wife Empress Alexandra at Easter 1898. The egg is one of the two eggs in Art Nouveau style. The egg is covered in pearls and topped with pink enamel. The gold-stemmed lilies have green enameled leaves and pearl flowers made of gold rubies-pearls, etc. Instead of a surprise when opening the egg, this egg's surprise gets 'elevated' out of the egg by twisting a gold-mounted pearl button. When fully raised three portraits are visible under the Imperial crown Czar Nicholas II and his 2 daughters. The portraits are in frames of rose diamonds on gold panels. They are framed in rose diamonds and backed with gold panels engraved with the date: April 5, 1898.
