Two vintage paper mache Easter eggs in vibrant colors, made in Western Germany.

The eggs feature typical Easter illustrations, including chicks on a boat, chicks fighting over a worm, a bunny, a snail and, of course, eggs, all within a spring landscape in full bloom. They have the traditional paper fringe along the interior edges, and the smaller egg nestles inside the larger one. Both eggs have handwritten inscriptions inside; the larger one reads "In Atlanta Ga 1970 Easter," and the smaller one reads "In Atlanta Ga 1969 Easter." Both marked "Germany." The smaller egg has a string for hanging--see condition description below. Estate find.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
Large: 6 3/8 in. long x 4 in. wide x 13 1/2 in. in circumference
Small: 4 3/4 in. long x 2 7/8 in. wide x 10 in. in circumference

CONDITION: The larger egg is in excellent condition, with the two halves fitting nicely together. The smaller egg has some damage and an old repair (see photos). The two halves have become warped over time and don't meet properly for a snug fit; therefore, the egg can't be hung in spite of having a string. Still usable for Easter basket or tabletop decor. Priced accordingly.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
