This egg is a bit larger that the extra large egg at the market. It has several coats of clear varnish and is waxed to create a strong finish that is also soft to touch. I can put a little brass hook on the top and some ribbon so the egg can be hung if you like. The little Easter chick appears on both sides and the bottom of the egg is also decorated in case you'd like to hang it. Perfect for the Easter tree... or even an Easter cake topper.
