RARE 8" Antique GERMAN Paper Mache EASTER EGG Candy Container COURTING CHICK Red:

Here we have a very large 8" antique German paper-mache Easter egg with exceptional lithographs of anthropomorphic courting chicks on a stunning deep and dark red background. The sophisticated and dapper Mr. Chick on one side (dressed in his finest top hat and evening coat adorned with a rose boutineer, which he has accessorized with a monocle and cane) holds out a dozen roses to his shy and flummoxed object of affection, the lovely Ms. Chick (dressed in her prettiest China blue frock and bonnet, her hands full of parasol and fan.) As is typical of the oldest paper mache eggs, this one is unmarked but clearly German, guaranteed. Red lace lines the exterior seam and white lace lines the interior seam. Paper lining pattern consists of tiny shiny gold fleur de lis. We operate a year-round holiday store, to which we try to add new inventory daily, and we're always happy to combine shipping at actual cost.

Approximate Measurements: 8" l x 5.5" w

We consider funky odors (cigarette smoke, mildew, etc) to be an important part of a condition report. Corndogcache is a 100% non-smoking environment, and we'll let you know if any of our vintage items smell like it (or anything else) from activities they may have been involved in before they came to us.
We're happy tocombine shipping at actual cost on all piecespurchased and paid foron one single invoice/order.In order to take advantage of this shipping cost savings, you must, must, must combine all of your pieces into one order and pay for all of them at once.The easiest way to do this is to place items in your cart, and then to purchase them as a group from your cart.If you're unable to get the checkout to combine your items into one order, do not pay. Back out of that mess and shoot us a message instead, asking for a combined invoice, and then wait to pay from that.

The Fine Print:

  • We expect payment within 1 day of purchase. If you're waiting for other sales to end so that you can combine shipping, shoot us a message to let us know.
  • If you're unable to pay within terms, please reach out with your Plan B. Things happen. Especially these days. So just shoot us a message.
  • We don't accept buyer-remorse returns but we will grant you the use of our description and photos so that you can re- the item yourself.
  • Although we don't accept buyer-remorse returns, reach out if you're unhappy with your purchase! If we messed up -- everybody does -- give us a chance to fix it. We promise it was unintentional, and we'll do what we can to make it right.
