The Diamond Trellis Egg

The Diamond Trellis Egg is carved from pale green jadeite and is enclosed in a lattice of rose-cut diamonds with gold mounts. Made in 1892, this Egg originally had a base representing three cherubs holding the Egg, made of ivory, gold, rose-cut diamonds, enamel, ant brilliant diamonds. Part of the McFerrin Collection, it is on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science this year. This Egg is a bit larger than a normal egg, measuring 10.8 cm.
