I know, there’s been a lot of bird action going on here lately. Must be the fact I’m camped out on the National Seashore for the summer. I came across this lovely object at Spindler Antiques. You might remember Andrew Spindler’s “Magic Garden” from a few months back. This is a 19th century bell jar filled with birds’ eggs. Don’t worry, the eggs are on the newer side. I love all the different earthy colors and speckles.
American, circa 1880 (bell jar), birds’ eggs (modern).
