A silver and enamel "surprise" egg by Anthony Elson
This beautiful Post War silver and enamel egg is rather unusual! It was made by the well known and respected Post War designer Anthony Elson. The egg shell itself is fine white enamel, of excellent quality, and looking rather convincingly like egg shell. It is a "surprise" egg, showing inside a beautifully crafted silver and gilt egg basket, which is sprung. Underneath is a catch and when released the basket springs upwards with quite some force!
It is 11cm tall and made in London 1979 by the Post War designer Anthony Elson.
