Hi friends,
I would like to know the exact meaning of this "looking-egg" I have read on the Steinbeck's "Travels with Charley":
'Long ago at Easter I had a LOOKING-EGG. Peering in a little porthole at the end, I saw a lovely little farm, a kind of dream farm, (...) I regarded this as a fairy-tale farm gnomes sitting under toadstools.'
It seems that refers to a dream or a vision "I had", isn't?
Thanks in advance, Jo.

In the last century, one form of Easter egg was a real egg (hen, duck, goose, whatever) from which the contents were removed. Then a small image or scene was inserted. You looked through the pinprick hole at one end and saw the scene. Alison Uttley describes one in an essay about growing up in Derbyshire before the First World War.
