Pair of Silver-Metal Mounted Ostrich Egg Candlesticks, retailed by Cartier, 20th century

Lofty says:

“Ostriches have always fascinated mankind. Originally found in Africa, they are the largest birds on the planet and while they can’t fly, they have the fastest land speed of all birds (up to about 43 mph). They have two toes as opposed to 3 or 4 like other birds, which helps with the running. They can live to be 50-75 years old. And then there are their eggs….They are the biggest eggs laid by any fowl currently on the planet and it would take 1 ½ hours of boiling to make a hard-boiled ostrich egg. The Cartier branded mounts on these fascinating curiosities provide the elevated elegant pedestals they deserve.” - Ursula LeBaron
