    Thank you for this information, Ivan49! I have never seen one just like this. As a matter of fact, I've never seen an egg this small that was a purse. It is magnificent in every respect.

    Wow! This is really neat. I would need to carry more girl stuff than a chicken egg purse! I would put this in my bigger purse though. Pull it out, squeal how cute it is.

    Not necessarily too much stuff is needed :-) if you put several gold coins in it,because it was meant for that.

    Absolutely beautiful! As you say Ivan, it would have held imperial gold kopeks, ducats, poltinas, or novodels! Thanks for the post!
