A Pair of Huge Sevres Eggs

Let's all join Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ and show off some blues. Let's check out her participants' sites and enjoy their blues too!
For today, I would like to show you our pair of Sevres eggs on ormolu stands. I think they call this shade Celeste Blue.
I might have shown you these in passing but never on their own. They are quite large, in fact, I cannot find a pedestal big enough to hold them. Their base alone is 18 inches wide.
They have a different hand painted design on each side.
John likes to collect eggs so we have a lot of egg shaped items here at the house.




Because I cannot find pedestals big and strong (they're heavy!) enough to hold them, they are sitting on the floor on either side of the French Provincial cabinet in our formal dining room.
In case you are wondering, behind each door of the cabinet holds a set of dinnerware.
Thanks Sally, for diligently hosting Blue Monday week after week.
And thanks all, for visiting my blog. I really do appreciate it, especially when you leave a comment. I hope you all have a nice week!
