" Decorated eggs have long been associated with Easter, but artificial versions didn't become popular until the latter part of the 19th century, when German factories began mass-producing and distributing papier-mâché, tin, and cardboard eggs. Parents, here and in Europe, bought the hollow containers to fill with candy and present to their children. The lithographed vessels usually featured illustrations depicting nursery rhymes, clowns, or Easter symbols (such as rabbits and chicks) and occasionally portrayed imagery not related to the holiday, like alligators and ostriches. The cardboard versions above, from the early 1900s, showcase another common detail: Dresden trim, an embossed, die-cut paper that circles the objects. While these examples appear in good condition (their paper shows no tears and both halves of their shells are intact), the conventional pictures and small size—from four to six inches—lessen their worth. Larger examples of these four- to six-inch cardboard eggs (up to 12 inches long), once used as displays in department stores, can command up to $1,000—much more than their smaller counterparts, which go for about $100 a pop. .. from Country Living Magazine ..
