A cream colored ostrich egg with painted patriotic designs in red, white, blue and gold. It has two major motifs: one is a massed flag design; the other is an eagle on a flag design with a blue banner. A swag, tassel and star band encircles the top. Some green and brown branches with leaves complete the flag design. There is a gold border around the bottom and the egg has two blow holes.
