ETCHED (SCRIMSHAW) OSTRICH EGG

When one looks at this etched and inked (scrimshaw) ostrich egg, you not only see an extensive amount of work but you also see a story. At the very top is a beautifully designed and etched vintage vector nautical compass. Just below the nautical compass is a banner with hearts and birds. Below the banner, there are four etchings of woman looking forlorn and either writing a note or carrying a note. Note the victorian dress. At the base are the ships, whales and men who perhaps are connected in some way to the women. This is all hand done and beautifully illustrated. As a note the egg itself is very strong and in great condition. The decorated egg comes with stand. Approximately 7" high.(BLDETE)

All of us have seen lots of candle molds and candle mold frames. However, we have never seen a single row candle mold frame that can sit on table, floor or hang on a wall. The tin mold itself is a round with the funnel shape top of each candle carved into the wood. The wedge at the top of the frame locks the mold once the wax is poured and releases the candles once the candles are set. (BCKTE)
