Hand-carved in the UK, this Ostrich eggshell lantern started its journey on the sets of Kirstie's Handmade Christmas 2020 on the Decoration competition (ep 8) on Channel 4 and finished after about 7 weeks, in my home studio in Essex.
This beautiful and very rare eggshell lantern makes for a very sentimental keepsake. Carved into a gorgeous pattern that depicts 'Father Christmas in his sleigh with his bag of presents, flying high amongst the stars' is an heirloom piece that can be passed down generations.
After the carving process, I applied multiple layers of 24-carat gold leaf to Santa's sleigh, the balloons in his bag of presents, the ribbons on the presents, and Santa's hat. The letters 'Merry Christmas' are engraved and filled with layers of 24-carat gold, slowly and patiently covering one inch at a time and going over it again. Santa and his bag of presents are hand-painted in beautiful red and spice red eco-friendly water-based acrylic paints.
This unusual Ostrich eggshell lantern is ready to go and will be dispatched when you place an order.
