The top part of Imperial Coronation Egg of Fabergé with the monogram of Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna Romanova, the wife of Empire Nicholas II, encrusted with rubies and diamonds. The tsarina’s monogram combines two Cyrillic letters of her name shown in old Russian font style: letter “A” (similar in English) and letter “Ф” (matches F in Latin alphabet) rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

The Imperial Easter Egg was made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Carl Fabergé in 1897 by Fabergé ateliers, Mikhail Perkhin and Henrik Wigstrom. Alexandra Fyodorovna received this amazing gift made from gold with translucent lime yellow enamel on a guilloché field of starbursts as a gift on Easter from her lovely husband and Russian tsar, Nicholas II.
