Real Chicken Egg hollowed and dyed with wax resist technique QEG056
Note: This egg was sold but one can be made for you through the Special Order process.
These dyed real chicken eggs are unique works of art made by applying wax then a series of dyes from lightest to darkest colors, blowing them out and varnishing them. The history of making these eggs started in Ukraine as a beautiful folk art and has much meaning behind their colors and symbols. Not all of the egg designs are traditional but are still fun to look up and of course, beautiful to look at. The egg itself represents a symbol of new life and is celebrated worldwide. If you are looking for love, be sure to pick out one with red. Go for blue if you want good health wishes and choose yellow for wise thoughts. This particular egg is titled "Turtles Swimming in Purple Swirls" and has green, white, black and purple colors with turtles swimming around the egg, in a swirl of purple strands with a black background.
Included in the purchase of this egg, is a FREE black painted and varnished wooden egg stand (pictured) and homemade paper gift box that your egg will come securely packaged in. A downloadable instruction booklet with color and symbol meanings that I have collected over the years is available in the blog section at at www.tammsmarketplace.com and includes how to care for your egg. A sample page is included in some of the egg photos.
All eggs from Tamm's Marketplace will be carefully packaged and properly insured and tracked through Priority Shipping at U.S.P.S. Alternative shipping arrangements can be made at the buyers expense if requested.
Each of the eggs are original and unique, where no two are exactly alike. They have qualities that vary from egg to egg, such as shade of dye or thickness of wax applied to the drawing. Some of these qualities can make an egg considered not so perfect and a special category was created for the ones I felt were still beautiful but justifiably should be reduced in price due to imperfections. Please visit the "Ooops and Not So Perfect" category where you will find $15 eggs. They were just too pretty not to share. Most of the imperfections can be faced toward a non viewing side of the room, like the wall. The imperfections are listed in detail and are explicitly photographed so you know the exact egg you are purchasing on sale. They also come with FREE stand and gift box.

For reimbursement, the damaged egg must be returned with stand and gift box.
