Not easy to find in up-country Thailand, Tom...when found, they disappoint as the chocolate is of poor quality.
Tom Wilson: You'll be able to find these easily, Ray - they are ordinary hen's eggs that have been painted - a tradition in Europe. These are from various E. European countries that I've picked up on my travels. In England the tradition is more usually to dye the eggs, using flowers, but painting is also known.

Oh, lovely eggs - East-European eggs? I have got a Polish egg, finely painted.
Tom Wilson: Yes, from Slovakia and Poland, I think - possibly Estonia too.
A lovely selection Tom!
Happy Easter to you.
Tom Wilson: And to you, Richard.
Aren't they beautiful! Happy Easter.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed- really beautifully done.
Maureen would just love this collection of eggs, she has several that she puts on an Easter Tree in our front window.
Tom Wilson: We have about another dozen of these, including some from the north-east with local scenes painted on them - I guess these would not be available any longer, since it was part of the tradition of mining villages.
Beautiful image.
Such vibrancy...
