custard egg
« on: February 28, 2006, 04:11:43 PM »
These little gems jumped out of a box which had been in storage in the attic since 1988. UV light reveals a high Uranium content. 

Leerdam did a colour very much like this in the 1920s called "Colopal" but I'm unable to match the design to Leerdam.

They're press moulded, almost entirely seamless, no marks of course.

Any suggestions?
