Fancy and Fabulous Eggs


Nature's perfection is glorified by applying silver and gold leaf over blown eggs. Chukar and turkey eggs are decorated in lavender and champagne-pink silver leaf, and chicken, pullet, turkey, and goose eggs wear varying shades of gold leaf.

The speckled beauty of a turkey egg suggests a natural kind of whimsy: Lifting the top by its acorn-cap handle reveals a porcelain egg on a downy-feathered nest of twigs.

Blown eggs cut into tiny baskets rest on bases of doily-trim paper. Fill with paper or velvet flowers, grass, or tiny animals.
