Are these real Eggshells? Yes, they are real eggshells, but protected for durability and long life. Clara Lee has customers with
eggs dating back 30 years in their collection.
Will the egg Break? Yes, the egg can be broken if
you try, we have coated it so that it is more durable than a glass ornament or any other fine Christmas ornament.
The coating usually allows the egg to be dropped from a reasonable height onto a hard surface without breaking, but is not
guaranteed not to break. We are always looking and trying new coatings to upgrade the protection of the egg.
How many different designs to you have? We
have 100's. With 6 different styles of painting we often have to decide which eggs to paint for shows. We do not
have our entire selection on our website (sometimes we have an idea and
paint 10 to 12 just to see how it will go over, the website just carries our most popular designs, some designs are over 20
years old). The best selection of eggs are at our shows where we will have over 300 eggs in our display.
We currently have close to 200 different designs in stock. If you don't see what you are looking for, just ask.
Why can't you put all your designs on your website?
Because we cannot keep enough of each design in stock for ordering purposes and each egg takes a minimum of 3 days to make
and we don't always have the time or opportunity to paint a design we are out of.
Can I place a special Order or Design? Yes, but only during certain times
of the year. You can special order a design in January thru August, after this time, we are away from home traveling
to shows and struggling to keep up our normal stock. We will paint your design and email you pictures before shipping
to make sure we have captured your design idea.
How are the eggs shipped? Each egg (if at
a show or shipped from home) comes in it's own gift box. We then put the boxes inside a larger box with bubble wrap.
We have never had an egg broken during shipping. They ship very well.
Do you ship to other countries? Yes, we have
shipped to 4 countries other than the U.S. and all arrived safely.
Is the egg replaceable? Yes, if you
bring the broken egg to one of our shows or mail it to us, we will replace it for FREE + cost of shipping. (You Must present the broken egg, we reuse the findings, they are very expensive).
What colors are the eggs available in?
The egg colors are constantly changing due to glitter and paint. If you are looking for a specific color, please contact
Do you wholesale? Yes, for orders over
30 eggs we will give a 10% discount.
Do you personalize? Of course, that is
one of the things that make the eggs a very unique gift.
Do all your Clara's daughters paint? All
of Clara's daughters paint, but not all at the same time. With families, children and careers the number of daughters
painting changes from year to year. This website contains eggs by Clara, Stephanie, Candace & Christy.
