Tony can also produce your very own Auk egg which will be a marked with a unique set of markings applied using his skill and knowledge of the subject. Tony has also written articles about the extinction of the Great Auk and has photographs in the round of some of the museum specimens and private collectors eggs known today. This hollow replica including blow holes is without the case, and must be handled delicately as a real egg!! there is a small label adhered to the egg with ‘Great Auk’ written as some of the Victorians’ did.
