Gatchina Palace Fabergé Egg,1901, presented by Nicholas II to Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorovna. When opened, the egg reveals a miniature replica of the Gatchina Palace, the Dowager Empress's principal residence outside St. Petersburg. So meticulously did Fabergé's work-master, Mikhail Perkhin, execute the palace that one can discern such details as cannons, a flag, a statue of Czar Paul I (1754-1801), and elements of the landscape, including parterres and trees.
