Designed for London's Faberge Big Egg Hunt 2012, Egg Letter Box plays on the iconic British red post box, purposefully designed to function
as a real letterbox.
Positioned on London's Carnaby Street an egg-straordinary story was to unfold. Just four days into the exhibition, the egg was poached. News of the stolen egg, along with another, made headlines around the world as a media campaign erupted calling for its safe return. Miraculously, the egg was returned days later, found by Police outside London's Liberty store one early morning.
After a bit of TLC, Egg Letter Box was returned to the exhibition behind a protective case.
Alongside selected eggs by leading artists and designers, Egg Letter Box was auctioned by Sotheby's, where it reached one of the highest prices of the evening selling for £42,000. The event and all 200 eggs sold helped raise over £1 Million for Action for Children and Elephant Family.
