The Gatchina Palace Egg is a jeweled, enameled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé in 1901. It was a gift from Tsar Nicholas II to his mother, the dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna, for Easter.

The egg was created by Fabergé’s workmaster, Mikhail Evlampievich Perkhin (Russian, 1860–1903), and is crafted from gold, enamel, silver-gilt, portrait diamonds, rock crystal, and seed pearls.
