This very rare Imperial presentation porcelain Easter egg with two-tone gilded double headed eagle was made at the Imperial Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg in the 1890s. The Imperial eagle is flanked by two ribbon-tied silvered laurel branches.
Height 3 3/4 in. (9.5 cm)
A similar egg but with cobalt blue ground and gilded branches from the Goop collection is illustrated in Kostbare Ostereier aus dem Zarenreich, Vaduz-Munich, 1998.
