A small very white ostrich egg finally carved in three motifs. Justice shows a woman with a sword and a child with scales. Fortitude shows a man sitting with a lion in the background. Temperance shows a woman giving a child a drink. All of them are outlined in diamond shaped borders. The top is decorated in a floral pattern with tasseled curtains. The bottom repeats the floral pattern and adds hearts between the motifs. There is a small string hanger in the hole end.
