This egg can be made to order for you!
The egg offered for sale here is a rare JUMBO goose egg measuring 4 inches tall. A shell will be carved for you duplicating the meandering flower and vine pattern fully covering the shell as shown in the example above. To convey its unusually large size, a carved jumbo goose egg is included in the second photo alongside a large goose egg and a chicken egg. A Lucite stand is included with this purchase.

To accommodate fluctuations in my schedule - especially during holiday seasons - please allow me 1 to 2 weeks to complete and prepare your order for shipping.

I sketch a design on the clean blown shell and use a high speed drill to hand carve the pattern you see illustrated. Each egg I create is unique. It is a wonder of nature; it is a rare and beautiful work of art.

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.
