Antique Mounted Ostrich Egg Box Decorated with Rhinestones under a Glass Dome


Antique silver mounted ostrich egg box decorated with rhinestones under a glass dome This stunning ostrich egg is be jeweled and decorated with a large number of Rhinestones which sparkle and give a beautiful effect. The Rhinestones are carefully placed in a pattern which somewhat resembles the shape of an eagle or large bird with a small pearl as its head. This pearl can be used to open the egg. The lid tilts back and is hold in place by a small gold-colored chain. The inside of the ornament is lined with red soft fabric and decorated with a gold string. This ostrich egg ornament was carefully handmade in the 1960s. It is mounted on an older German made silver standard which is marked by the number 13. The number 13 means the silver is 13 Loth; a system used in Germany and Prussia before 1888 to mark silver fineness. (It corresponds to a fineness of 812 / 1000). The egg was later placed under a glass dome with an ebonized base to protect it and to give it some well deserved recognition. Measurement: Mounted Ostrich Egg Height 23 cm / 9 in. Diameter 15 cm / 5.9 in. Glass Dome Height 40 cm / 15.7 in. Diameter 21 cm / 8.3 in. Condition: The ostrich egg box is in a good condition and completely cleaned. There are some spots inside and outside where the egg has been restored over the years which left residue of glue.
