Ice egg was made for doctor Emmanuel Nobel, Alfred Nobel's nephew who based the Nobel Prize. At first sight, Ice Egg seems quite simple, but this impression is deceptive as the simple basis from opaque glass is covered with variable layers of the transparent and opaque white enamel, each layer separately painted and engraved to remind a frost. Result - ice shine which flickers as cold winter morning. Inside - the pendent of the hours, which dial is half hidden by snowflakes from rock crystal.

Pay attention, on other eggs created by Faberge's jeweler house, the Scandinavian Egg or egg with mysterious history Hours Egg.
