Victorian Opaline Glass Egg Easter Keepsake
An early 1800's custom was to send Easter greetings accompanied by a keepsake. During Napoleon III era,these hand blown eggs were at its peak, and were often hand painted by the giver. This large and unique egg is fitted at the top with a bronze ormolu hanger,with chain of tiny twisted loops attached to the hanging loop. Obviously hand painted violets, not professional, but so charming! There is a round piece on the bottom, which seems to be ebony with ivory center, or possibly Bakelite, added to cover the pontil. Measures 6" tall with hanger. Found in Brussels
