The Rothschild Fabergé Clock Egg was created in 1902 and presented by Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild to Germain Halphen on the occasion of her engagement to Beatrice's younger brother, Baron Eduoard de Rothschild. Every hour, the diamond-set Cockerel pops up from inside the egg which incorporates a clock, flaps his wings four times and then nods his head three times while opening and closing his beak and crowing, with each performance lasting approximately 15 seconds.
