I suspect the "selected by motif" part probably refers in some way to the fact that each etched design (or part of design, such as "two-headed-eagle" etc.) is based on an original of some historical significance or something specific to the original Faberge eggs.

In other words, it's probably a statement that the current work is a copy of some earlier work. I feel that this is backed up by what is stated in some of the websites where the modern glass eggs are available.

Thanks everyone! 

I still think it is very pretty in the flesh for a modern copy, the engraving has been nicely finished.  It was never going to be a REAL old Faberge, but it might have been an old copy which was my hope.... ::)

Looking around I was amazed at the difference in prices for the modern copies, seems a huge variation for what look to be the same things.
