Persian Ostrich Egg- Mystery Item?

Postby ProbelleAntqies » Tue Nov 06, 2018 5:21 pm

This one's an absolute beauty. Extremely detailed and extremely delicate, with some slight imperfections as shown. You can see a signature on the egg itself. Note, the stand is not part of the set. Upon searching, I have not been able to find another egg with the same story being depicted. Experts needed!

Hello,
It says "Seegh Bimayos" meaning crafted in May 1911. A beautiful piece. Very special. I've not seen another either.
