Hand Painted Ostrich Egg
An antique, probably Victorian, hand painted ostrich egg.
This beautifully painted ostrich egg is adorned with hand painted roses. The roses are painted in dusky and dark pink hues with stems and leaves and new buds. The roses cover the middle of the egg, going all the way round.
Due to the age of the egg, c.1900, some of the paint has come away in a few areas, but this does not detract from the beauty of this gorgeous piece.
The top has the hole where the egg was blown. It sits on a little brass and glass coaster stand and measures 15cm including the stand.
An exquisite and unusual decorative piece.
