A miniature Easter egg with a difference

28 March 2012

Easter is just around the corner and with it the customary tradition of giving chocolate eggs. 

But if your taste is for something a little more exotic, then the World in Miniature Museum at Houghton Hall, Cumbria, is the place for you.

This Easter, the museum is exhibiting a tiny golden egg in the style of the great jeweller, Fabergé.

Designed as a 1/12th scale miniature of an original Fabergé egg, it is made of solid gold and opens to reveal a tiny harvest mouse with a diamond.

This totally unique, one-off piece is the work of Stephen Randall who is well known in the world of miniatures and has produced commissions for the Queen and Prince Charles.

So if you’re visiting Cumbria over the Easter period, why not take a look at this wonderful piece and don’t forget to pop into the Dolls House Emporium shop next door for something a little more affordable.
