This egg for its form and idea is very similar to the Bouquet of Lilies Imperial Egg, but because of the arrangement between the Emperor and Faberge forbidding to make any duplicate of the Imperial Eggs, this egg has a number of differences. The egg is made of pink quartz, from top down there are 12 gold lines which form 12 hours, the hand is executed in the form of a bulb with an arrow decorated with brilliants. The egg represents a vase on top of which there is a bouquet of lilies made in chalcedony; the stalks and the leaves of the lilies are made in gold, and pistls are decorated with diamonds. The egg's base is an onyx decorated with gold and diamonds.

The first owner of this egg is not known.
