The "Pansy Egg" is also known as the "Jade Egg". This name originates from the precious stone from which it has been made. In addition to jade, the egg used to be decorated with diamonds. It stands on a bunch of carved leaves, made of gold, from which stem five buds of pansies, enameled with various shades of purple. After opening the top part of the egg one can see a decorated with pearls gold heart, on which there are eleven tiny medallions in the shape of strawberries. All of them are connected by a monogram in the shape of the letter M. When opened, the medallions uncover the portaits of all members of the imperial family. At the top of the heart there is a floral wreath surrounding the star of Bethlehem. Below it there appears the year 1899 of complection of the work.
