Good Egg

Easter eggs are not all edible! There is a long tradition of giving eggs as presents at Easter made of precious metals.   These novelty eggs have become extremely collectable .  A good egg  example is a 13cm tall  silver mushroom with an Easter egg inside made by silversmith Christopher Nigel Lawrence,  hall-marked  London, 1981.  At the time of writing this is for sale at £350 amongst the stock of Chelsea jeweller Ian Towning  at  Bourbon Hanby Arcade,  opposite the Old Town Hall in King’s Road, London.  Enquiries telephone 0207 352 2106.
