Jemima Puddle Duck/Duck Beatrix Potter
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
This little ornament is made of a chicken egg shell. The covering is a cotton fabric. In the inside back of the egg shell is a picture of Beatrix Potter's Jemima Puddle Duck. In front of the picture is a little rubber "lucky mini" duck in a garden.
The egg isn't as delicate as you may think. It has layers of glue and fabric plus the "diamond dust" covering the background.
There is a little holder made of a 1/2 egg shell that matches.
"I love my 'Amy Eggs'. We bring them out every year. My children loved them and now my grandchildren love them". I get them custom made with names and whatever theme is a favorite that year." Vickie Kendrick
“My eggs have held places of honor in my holiday decorations since I received them....(about 45 years ago). Honestly I'm shocked they all survived this long, but I'm so glad they did!” Debbie Lebeck
*I started making “Faberge” eggs in North Carolina in 1972 while my husband was stationed at Pope Air Force base. Eggery in the south was big back then. I learned to hinge duck eggs, with doors, and put music boxes inside. I even made a couple of Ostrich egg clocks. What I loved making most were the little chicken eggs covered with fabric and little scenes inside. When I moved to the Monterey Peninsula I sold my eggs at a Christmas store in Carmel and at the La Playa Hotel Christmas show where Maggie Eastwood (Clint’s wife) bought personalized egg ornaments for their children.
I stopped making eggs as life went on, but always kept a supply of miniatures. In 2014 I brought out my supplies and made a batch for Artistic Portland, a Co-op store for artists in Portland Oregon.
