The egg offered for sale here is a rare JUMBO sized goose egg measuring 4 inches tall! It is shown in the second photo with a large goose egg and a chicken egg for size comparison. A winding flower and vine pattern completely covers this egg. A Lucite stand is included with this purchase.
Since the dawn of man, the egg has been associated with creation. Because they contain new life and such potential, eggs were seen as a tool of divination. Their size, shape, and contents were used to forecast the future. Christians regard the egg as a symbol of the risen Christ. Beautifully decorated Easter eggs are a common tradition throughout Christendom. The Victorians, fond of ornamentation, decorated their eggs with snippets of daily life: trade cards, ribbons, beads, and bits of old lace. The eggs I create today are etched or carved in patterns reminiscent of fine Victorian lace, and so I call these delicate, dainty works of art Victorian Lace Eggs.
