This is a very unusual, fancy cut glass egg paperweight from Russia. Probably made in St. Petersburg, it is chartruese or light green colored glass with hand cut designs that are detailed in gold. The design features on one side, a 2 headed eagle with 2 crowns inside of a wreach and on the opposite side is what looks like a monogram H with a large crown above it inside a wreach also. There is also a star cut in the top that has rays that cover the height of the egg on 2 sides. The bottom has a gold colored sticker that has a 2 headed eagle and Russian words. This crystal paperweight stands on its own measuring 3 3/4 inches tall and is about 2 3/4 inches in diameter. This decorator or souvenir egg is in excellent condition. This is a unique piece that is a 'must have' to add to any egg or paperweight collection!
