Here comes an antique Art Nouveau Easter egg shaped children’s book with Ester related rhymes, poems, and beautiful coloured illustrations. The lithographed book was printed around 1900 in Germany by the famous Theo Stroefer’s Kunstverlag in Nuremberg.
The cardboard cover is fine, the 5 pages are firm, the block of pages is stable, there are few scribbles on the cover and in the book, all in all, the book is in very good condition considering the age!
The title is “Mein Osterei”, meaning “my Easter egg”. Please, do see all the photographs!
Interestingly, you see the perfect example of the Wilhelmine era Germany depicted in the lithographs, the Easter bunny and all children wearing uniforms, as was the fashion even long before WWI.

*Please notice: This antique book belongs not into the hands of children; it may not fulfill the safety standards for toys in our time! So, it is not meant as a toy, though an adult collector’s & vintage book lover’s item for decoration and display only!
