In Russia, the swan is considered a symbol of family life and the permanence of the bond of marriage. Swans always live in pairs and are devoted to each other all their lives. Therefore, it was most appropriate to present the Imperial Swan Egg to the Dowager Empress Maria Fedorovna on the occasion of her 40th wedding anniversary. The egg is made of opaque mauve enamel with a crystal encrusted trellis design. The surprise inside the egg is a swan which also holds a pendant.
