I am looking for a photo of a gift given to the wife of Alexander III in 1887.

It’s a rock crystal egg. This is a reproduction.

Then there is another egg with wood anemones flowers in the center. I found the photo last night again but I can’t upload it because it’s being blocked.  So I will describe…It’s red with gold accents and the anemones flowers are in a basket in the center . The basket is covered in diamonds.
