This is my Sugar Easter egg from the 1960's. Does anyone know anything about these. Who made them? What they are worth today. What category should they be in.

    I too remember these. Grandma use to make them and she would put pictures of us inside. Of course I always had a pink one so beautifully decorated. Thanks for sharing....I had forgotten that part of my childhood.

    Several of the bakeries around Chicago used to make them. The last I checked a few still do. I'm not sure how you would date it, since I remember these from my own childhood in the 70s. We used to get them from the bakery, but one year we made them at home: icing decorations and all. A great memory. I doubt it has much value, though. Ebay seems to be selling 'vintage ones' for around $20. Just FYI http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1987-04-16/entertainment/8701290188_1_eggs-sugar-easter

    Hi! If anyone wants to buy them still, they are still made and they sell them at Cost Plus World Market! I got some for my kids' Easter baskets!!!
