The Nutcracker Ballet Egg features
the Prince and the Mouse King, the egg being
mounted on the Romanov Dynasty Double Eagle
The right side of the Egg as shown
in the graphic appears flat because it is the
portion of the egg that is cut flat, it is the
viewing lens. It is actually incorporated into
the design and is not an anomaly to the design.
Looking through that lens you see the interior
of the Egg with all of the intricacies of the
cuts. It is what makes these pieces so outstanding.
When you look at cut crystal normally what you
see are the exterior cuts. Here you can see
the cuts from various interior angles and that
is truly the fascination of these Eggs.
