18 Hand Painted Russian Romanov Dynasty Eggs in Lacquered Wood Box, Artist: Irina Grebyonkina (Photo of artist with eggs included with set) Created at the Pavlovsk Art College circa 1998 We don`t know if these eggs are porcelain or paper-mache or even real eggs that have been blown and painted. None the less this is a unique set and one that seems from the images to have been executed to an exceptionally high standard. The painting and gifting of decorative eggs, often depicting religious imagery is a long standing orthodox Christian tradition. The eggs are 7 1/4 in circumference. They are 3 1/8 long.
They appear to be at least twice as big as you large chicken egg at the supermarket. The box is 17 1/4 long x 12 3/4 wide x 3 1/4 high. The lid is not hinged it simply sets on top.
