This Special purple red 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.
This purple one is a real colour changer due to neodymium glass. Depending on the intensity and warmth of the light it can be anything from aubergine colour to intensive purple red. In tube light it gets blue tones added to the color, and in very intensive warm light it is purple red.
To give an idea of the size of this big egg we also pictured it with Rosalinda's horisontal egg and with our frosted Steller's Eider egg from Unique days 2006.
