Museum Signage Systems
Displaying collectible eggs is not very complicated as the
shape of the eggs is usually similar. What changes is the size and weight. So a
typical display would be something the egg can sit into. These can vary from acrylic
rings to special sphere shaped stands made from brass, wood, acrylic or other
materials. Another type of display stand that eggs or spheres could sit into is
acrylic or metal pronged stands where prongs hold the decorative egg in place. There
are also display stands that are just bases with a sphere shaped dimple in the
top of the base where the decorative egg can sit into. Finally, there is a type
of stand called a caliper stand that suspends the egg from its ends.
Some types of collectible eggs are: Faberge eggs,
Easter eggs, Marble eggs, Onyx eggs, Fossil eggs, Painted eggs, Carved eggs, Pysanky
eggs, Glass eggs, Gold eggs, Silver eggs, Stone eggs, Christmas eggs, Porcelain
eggs, Ostrich eggs, & Emu eggs.
