These eggs come from Africa, and measure approximately 18 cm (7inches) in height. Their surface is a layer of dimpled cream enamel which is and varied in texture yet gives it a ceramic feel. I've included a picture below of the hole each has where the egg is blown to remove the yolk and white. The Big Egg Hunt shop also sells the unpainted ostrich eggs for £20.
The colours of these do vary.
