The egg opens in half to expose a removable and magnetically attached flower bouquet. The piece comes in a beautiful gift box. Egg History:  The Original Spring Flowers Egg is made of varicolored gold, platinum, translucent strawberry red enamel, diamonds, bowenite and satin and velvet lining. The basket surprise is made of platinum, gold, translucent green enamel, diamonds and white chalcedony and demantoid (green) garnets. The Spring Flowers Egg, hallmarked with head work master Michael Perkhin's "early" mark, is struck with the St. Petersburg's assay mark for before 1899 and appears to bear a scratched number 443 (or 4) 74, which may or may not be Faberge's inventory number. Its original fitted case is stamped with Faberge's Imeprial Warant and the addresses of St Petersburg, Moscow, and London. The hallmark dates the egg to before 1899, the original case to after 1903, after the opening of the Longon Branch.
