Mary Serves up an Egg.

Forfar Rotary were treated to a serving of an egg with a difference at this weeks meeting. Guest speaker Mary Ballantyne was introduced by Rotarian Jim Nicoll although Mary is well known to club members as this was her third talk to the club. Her topic on this occassion was Faberge Eggs and in particular the Dragon Egg.

Theo Fabergé's creation in tribute to his grandfather Carl Fabergé who was one of the first to interpret oriental influence within jewellery design. Thus the Egg is made from jet black crystal and hand painted with raised 23 carat gold. A design inspired by the delicate work of ancient oriental craftsmen. Finally, the fiery eye of the dragon is a glittering faceted ruby.

The Coup de Grace came at the end of the talk when Mary produced an actual Dragon Egg for Rotarians to view and hold. The Vote of thanks was given by Rotarian Gavin Drummond.
