Description

MedievalMorsels goose, duck eggs, 12th one inch scale dolls house miniature food. Market scene, Medieval
dollshouse kitchen, Tudor dollhouse food, rustic room-box. These freshly gathered free-range eggs from ducks and geese in the 1:12 scale miniature poultry yard are modelled by MedievalMorsels for maximum authenticity in terms of egg size and colour.

For this listing CHOOSE egg type - GOOSE EGGS (photos 7 - 10), DUCK EGGS (photos 2 - 6) - and container type - aged bowl or woven basket or even loose eggs - according to the drop down menu.

Early Medieval free range poultry included geese and ducks - the earliest poultry ever domesticated by man - and chickens and pheasants. Quails, guinea fowl and turkeys were later imports to Medieval Europe.

These eggs would suit a modern doll's house kitchen, poultry yard or garden setting, or one from the European Dark Ages, through Medieval periods to Tudor including Elizabethan or Renaissance times. Eggs would have made a welcome addition for the cook in a wealthy household for use in the sauces commonly served with meats, poultry and fish - adding rich colour and/or reducing saltiness. Often chopped hard boiled egg, especially yolk, might also feature in a recipe.

Decorated Easter eggs are mentioned several times in Hilary Mantel's Booker prize winning novel "Wolf Hall". It is the first in a trilogy about the rise to power of low-born Thomas Cromwell who became Henry VIII 's favourite adviser during his divorce from Katherine of Aragon, his break with the Church of Rome and his marriage to Anne Boleyn. In February 2015 the BBC aired a 6 part historical drama based on Mantel's novel and its successor "Bring up the Bodies", an unprecedented second Booker prize winner for the author. Early on in the novel painted Easter eggs feature as Cromwell's wife and daughters paint them with Cardinal Wolsey's likeness, with well known tri-corn hat, haircut and face. But later on, as events unfold and Wolsey fall's from favour, Cromwell's family paint his own resemblance on the celebratory eggs. They will be eaten to mark the end of six weeks of Lenten fasting.

Nobles' estates and monasteries would probably have kept flocks of poultry, or managed game birds such as pheasant, resulting in self-sufficiency in both eggs and meat. Peasants in the countryside on the other hand might have kept a few poultry in order to sell their eggs in nearby towns, only having the benefit of their meat when the birds' laying days were over.

This item is a collector's one inch scale dollhouse miniature, not suitable for a child's dollshouse.

Sometimes the extremely low temperatures in an unpressurised aircraft hold may cause the glues used to fail and items/parts can become unglued. If this happens please send me an e-ail via Etsy and I can advise on the best type of glue to use.

If your item is damaged in transit beyond a simple re-glue repair please e-mail me via Etsy and I will work with you to put things right, to your satisfaction, as swiftly as possible. I want you to be fully satisfied with my product and my service.
