Easter set (II)
This is a carefully and beautifully packed, ready luxury set of Easter ornaments. The Easter set is an ideal proposition for companies searching for representative souvenirs from Poland for their contractors, customers, shareholders or workers. In this set we emphasize diversity of Polish original handicraft, so that it represents the most unique Easter traditions. Therefore, the set could not lack Opole painted Easter eggs; hand weaved basket or a serviette hand made in a crochet technique.
The set is composed of
- Opole painted Easter eggs (four eggs) - four Easter eggs, referred to as “kroszonka” in Polish, created on basis of blue and green painted hen eggshell. It is hand decorated with application of method based on hand-engraving of decorating motifs on previously one-coloured eggshell. The author decorated it with traditional vegetable and floral ornaments: flowers, leaves and palms, which can be often found in Opole folk works of art – for example on embroidered tablecloths. It is well worth to pay special attention to precision and thickness of ornament. Masterful work can be recognized owing to equal sizes of particular elements of engraved ornament. Preparation of such sophisticated decoration for one kroszonka takes few hours of work.
- Hand weaved basket (22 x 11 cm) - pine root weaved by a master of Polish handicraft. This wickerwork will pose an original and elegant decoration for every interior. Its author used traditional Kashub plait. Root wickerwork craft is the one of the passing-away branches of Polish handicraft – it is more and more frequently forced out by wattle wickerwork. Gaining and processing of raw material is very difficult and time-consuming - also process of tree root weaving is complicated and therefore fewer and fewer people practice this difficult craft. It is well worth to add to collection wickerwork of this kind, before the art of root weaving disappears.
- Serviette (diameter 36 cm) - hand made in a crochet technique, round, white serviette (diameter: 35 cm). Lace worker applied traditional vegetable motifs. Visibly distinguishing flower is placed centrally.
