Hand-painted Polish Easter Eggs Burst with Color

Throughout the years, a collection of Polish wooden Easter eggs has grown.

Because of my maternal Polish roots, this particular egg collection has always been very special to me.

Both of my mother's parents immigrated to the United States from Poland.

The eggs have a variety of different background colors as well as styles of painting.

Most have floral themes.

This year they are displayed in glass plates, including the one shown below on a stand,  on a front hall table.

This collection of Polish Easter eggs is one of my all-time favorites.

I don't have any, but those are lovely! Likewise, the entire side of my Dad's family immigrated from Poland going back as far as the mid to late 1800s, some before Ellis Island, and others, like my Grandfather in 1911 through Ellis Island. I never got to know any of them of course as they were all long gone by the time I was born, since my parents are older (my Dad is 91 - so that gives you an idea why I couldn't possibly know my grandparents!). :)

What lovely eggs for your Easter table. It was my Dad's family that immigrated from Poland so many years ago now; they didn't bring any of these lovely traditions with them. Not sure why.

Thank you for your most interesting post today!

I have them too and also some from Korea that I got from a student of mine. I enjoy their different colors and designs. Enjoy yours too.

I always admire your Polish wooden Easter eggs, Susan. And the fact that you're part Polish makes me smile, me too! The eggs look so pretty in the glass dish sitting on your table. You have such a wonderful collection, something special from your heritage. : )

Such beautiful things!!!! I have seen some hand blown eggs painted by a gal who grew up Mennonite so guess that would have been German. I like the wooden ones better as not danger of breakage!

Your egg collection is breathtakingly beautiful. They are so colorful, but the backstory I what makes them special. The only egg collection I have are a few inexpensive Russian eggs I picked up when we lived in Germany. That reminds me I need to get them out and put them on display.

your egg collection is eggcellent. We were in Boston once and went to a wood factory that produced wooden eggs for the White House Easter egg roll on the front lawn.
