Elephant Bird Egg

Today Sotheby's in London put on public display this extremely rare Elephant Bird Egg in its galleries at 34–35 New Bond Street. It will be on view for only five days prior to Sotheby's Travel, Atlases, Maps and Natural History auction on Thursday 30 April. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view an egg from this Madagascan bird, which has been extinct for about 400 years. Sir David Attenborough counts such an egg amongst his most prized possessions and featured it in a recent TV programmes. His egg was pieced together from fragments. Lot 26 is intact. Can the Natural History Museum afford £30,000 to £50,000 (CLICK)?
