This elegant frosted black Big Egg was in production in 1996. Design by Professor Oiva Toikka. That year Special Big Eggs in three matching colours were produced. The colours were matte Black, shiny Golden and matte Purple, and the eggs were sold by mail order in 1996. Today these eggs are hardly ever seen on the market!
These Eggs are found in the "Birds by Toikka"- book on page 114.
To give an idea of the huge size of this big egg we pictured it with a black Snow Bunting of ours and together with a Mistle Thrush's egg, the Annual egg of 2013.
