    my buddy glen fills them with PVC glue with a syringe through one of the holes and then paints the egg with clear nail polish. you could probably do something similar!

    lol! actually i think it was a museum display. whoever made it, it was likely their job to make such things. i think it's a coffe table. but look! they just look like domestic bird eggs! like chicken, quail and peasant. i see and emu egg in there too!

    I see:
    Pheasant, Quail, Emu, Chicken, Duck (maybe), and a ton of little tweety bird eggs.

    Well, here you go:
    The picture above was posted on a U.K. board -- a shot of a Vicorian-era museum collection of wild bird eggs.​

    Can you imagine "Well Mrs. EE, we need 3 eggs today to get the colored corners complete. Can you do a triple shift?" LOL. Well it's really cute. I think they blew them out.
