DESCRIPTION
This egg is the most revered of all the Empire eggs.  The egg is trellised with bands of blue ribbon. Translucent blue Swarovski crystals and pearls add to the opulence of this egg. The surprise in this egg is the golden yellow hair from England. The accurate and highly-detailed Camay took 2 months to fabricate.  The egg is surmounted by a gold Imperial crown.
