The exhibition highlights Carl Fabergé and his works which showcase Russian craftsmanship, and the Russian Imperial family. One of the three imperials eggs is the Moscow Kremlin Egg, the largest Imperial Egg inspired by the architecture of Dormition Cathedral in Moscow.

The other eggs borrowed from the exhibition include the Alexander Palace Egg, featuring the watercolor portraits of Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra’s children which also contains a surprise model of the palace inside the egg. 

The last one is the Tercentenary Egg, crafted a few years before the dynasty crumbled to celebrate 300 years of the Romanov dynasty. 

Other eggs featuring Fabergé's artistic skills will include the Basket of Flowers Egg which belonged to Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, lent by the Queen on from the British Royal Collection Trust. The Queen will also lend some of her Fabergé collection such as bespoke pieces made for King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra.
