    I have had this egg for about 20 years but don't know anything about it. My mother got it from a friend and gave it to me when she down sized her home. It's about 22" tall without the base and 41" in circumference. There are no marking on it that I can find. It seems to be a quality piece and hand painted but I really don't know a thing about it.

      I cannot find any markings on the egg. I will attempt to clean the base and post a pic today.

      I added a pic of the bottom of the piece and some more info to the original description.

      Huh. If the base is original to the egg, are there markings on the base, maybe?
    6. JerryJeff, 6 years ago
      The base is original to the egg as far as I know, it is a perfect fit and has always been with the egg. The base does not have any markings.
