Kraslice: Czech folk art egg designs

Kraslice: Czech folk art egg designs

Beautiful representations of colorful, traditional hand-painted Easter eggs can be seen on a vintage Czechoslovakian matchbox labels sheet. Printed by the matchbox label factory, Solo Lipnik, the folk art inspired designs of a "national treasure," appropriately carry the text "Lidové Uméni" and "Pokladnice Národa." There are 12 different matchbox labels with a egg design motif.

The same sheet also features lovely snowflake designs (or a bird's eye view of the egg patterns?).
