This exquisitely crafted egg is less than two inches long and could have been used as a container for candies. The shell of the egg is silver gilt and enamelled in translucent white. Swags of green gold laurel leaves criss-crossed in red gold divide the egg into separate rounded panels. Rubies are set into the swags and into the lower panels.
