A real goose egg decorated with decoupage on an ornate stand.
This charming egg has been decorated with an image of a British blackbird amongst foliage on one side and a swallowtail butterfly on the other. The decoupage has then been protected with a high gloss varnish. The goose egg sits on an ornate stand, the base being wood and hexagonal in shape with felt attached to the bottom. The stem has a very detailed gold metal scrolling design, featuring two birds on the side of the blackbird. The top of the egg, where the contents were blown, has a pretty finial to complement the stem.
The piece is in ‘egg’cellent condition and measures approx. 17cm to the top of the finial.
