Here is a comparative photo that verifies that what we have is an emu, not ostrich, egg (this points to the importance of re-examining old catalog entries). The cameo is correctly identified as emu. And here is an emu chick (new arrival) at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History (just for fun). Looking forward to seeing both the egg and cameo exhibited and interpreted by the Colonial Milieu team.
