For a long time it was supposed that this Egg was one of Imperial Easter Eggs. Research however, proved that for it there is no place among Imperial Easter Eggs. Htn Egg from Lapis Lazuli is very similar to Hen Egg of 1898 made for Varvara Kelkh. However because of the agreement between the Tsar and Faberge that any Imperial Easter Egg can't be repeated, Hen Egg from Lapis Lazuli, can't be Imperial Egg.

Pay attention, on other eggs created by Faberge's jeweler house, Nobel Ice Egg presented to Alfred Nobel's nephew or Rothschild Egg more than hundred years belonging to a family of the American billionaires.
