Emerald Egg

The egg as decorative object is an eternal classic, but this glowing find was made in Murano circa 1970. The true emerald hue gives it a jewel-like quality and is best displayed near a bright light source to see the deeply saturated green tone and to appreciate hand etched striations. It looks both medieval like some dragon egg from "Game of Thrones' and Sci-Fi like an alien pod. Regardless, it is chic in any era.
About the size of an ostrich egg- 7"  including the custom Lucite base.

NOTE: We will be closed Wed-Friday to celebrate Thanksgiving - back on "Small Business Saturday"
