Vintage painted South Africa Ostrich egg
A hand painted vintage souvenir of South Africa. The painted scene depicts a rural hut together with a figure. I am not sure what it is painted with but it may be oils as the paint is thick and quite textured as can be seen in the photographs.
You can tell that this is an old egg as the pits in the shell are visible due to many years of dust building up in them.
The egg is 14.5cm long and pierced at both ends for blowing.
