Vivian Alexander Collection - Duchess of Marlborough, Renaissance, Lilies of the Valley, Coronation, and Cockerel Eggs. Géza von Habsburg upon seeing my Lilies of the Valley Egg noticed it had a stand with three legs instead of the four on the original Fabergé egg. He told me the original Fabergé Lilies of the Valley Egg was awarded Best of Show at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris, and the judges at the fair thought the piece was perfect except it would had been even better, if Fabergé had used three legs instead of four.
