This little ornament is made of a chicken egg shell. The covering is pink gingham checked cotton fabric. In the inside back of the egg shell is a picture of Beatrix Potter's scene of Mother Mouse holding her baby mouse. In front is a tiny ceramic bowl saucer and spoon on little checkered cloth.
The egg isn't as delicate as you may think. It has layers of glue and fabric plus the "diamond dust" covering the background.
The egg comes with a "nest" holder made of 1/2 an egg shell.
"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 Gallery.
