19th Century White Jade Darning Egg

19th Century Jade Darning Egg

From an estate ... the Lady has collected fancywork and was a passionate needlewoman too. She had wonderful pieces!

These rare darning egg is made of jade. I guess it is much older as 19th Century but I cannot adduce an evidence. The jade stone has wonderful amber shadows and a fine ivory color. To one top a small hole, I find out from the past owner that this egg had a silver handle which got some damages for many, many years.

The condition is very good, the surface so pleasant to touch due the hand polishing over many decennia.

Measurements: 2.4 inches in height, ca. 1.8 inches in diameter.
