solid brass egg responds to the touch with weight for easter gift
by The Copper Collection from UK
The Brass Egg is a minimal, geometric object inspired by nature’s life-giving form.
Abundant in nature, the ovoid recalls both the egg and seed. This organic shape has been celebrated since antiquity by cultures all over the world, and endures today as a symbol for regeneration and hope.
The egg brings hope and purity. It is a powerful symbol of new life, fertility, rebirth and the circle of life. In some Asian cultures the egg is seen as a symbol of luck and wealth.
Handcrafted from solid Brass, the Brass Egg responds to the touch with weight, warmth and motion. Measuring 65.5 mm by 47.5 mm, the Egg fits perfectly in your palm as you muse on ideas and challenges, and makes an attractive paperweight when you reach a solution.
Due to it’s weight and careful engineering, the Brass Egg may balance perfectly on its base, making it an intriguing talking point.
Over time the metal will age naturally, developing a rich, dark patina that is unique to your touch. If you prefer your egg to shine, the brass can be polished and waxed to reduce oxidisation.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Care</strong>:</span>
We put a lot of time and care into the design, engineering and finishing of all our products. We hope that this information will help you to enjoy them for many years.
All of our products are made by hand, using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. Each item is unique and no two items will have precisely the same tone or markings.
Our products are crafted from solid copper or brass. Over time the metal will naturally oxidise, developing a rich, dark patina that is unique to your touch. Copper and brass patinas vary in colour from a deep charcoal to vibrant turquoise, making each item beautifully distinct.
To restore the original shine to your item, copper and brass can be polished gently with a soft polishing cloth and waxed to reduce oxidisation. We recommend Renaissance Wax, which was developed by the British Museum in the 1950s and is still used today to protect artefacts in the world’s major museums and art galleries. It is important to note that wax creates a barrier between the object and its environment, reducing the natural antibacterial properties of the metal.
All Copper Collection products are splash proof but please avoid direct contact with perfume, creams and other sprays as these may cause discolouration.
