german paper mache easter eggsThe Easter Bunny (Oster Hase) in Germany doesn’t hide treats in pastel colored plastic eggs… instead; he uses these traditional German Paper Mache Easter Eggs. These beautifully decorated with motifs of Bunnies, flowers and springtime, they are big enough to hold all your favorite Easter Chocolates. The gift box eggs are a lovely addition to your Easter Celebrations, and are one of my favorite German Easter Traditions.

My mom would often place one for each of us on the Easter Breakfast Table. Breakfast is extra special when chocolate is involved! And they make a sweet centerpiece, nestled in a basket of Easter Grass. It’s also a nice way to present a small gift at Easter.

Luckily, you can still find German Paper Mache Easter Eggs for your Treats! New and Vintage… and in loads of different sizes.

Take a look below!

Modern and Old Paper Mache Eggs…

Paper Mache Easter eggs have been used in Germany to give treats since the late 19th century. Like the wood carved figures, these eggs originated in the Erzgebirge.  The very fancy ones even had real lace around the edges.  Naturally, being made from paper, they are quite fragile, and since they were given to children…. Well… you can imagine there aren’t many old ones left.

Antique Eggs have become very collectible, and some are quite valuable! If you happen to have an old Paper Mache Egg, look inside to get an idea of the date.

How to Date Vintage German Paper Mache Eggs

Eggs stamped German were generally produced before 1918.
Eggs stamped German Republic can be dated between 1918 and 1933.
