Hi, this is my first thread so be kind!
I recently obtained an Alien Egg which I suspect might have been made for one of the earlier films (Alien, Aliens). I am trying to find out more about this item and how I can find out if this is a genuine screen used prop or at least made by the prop builders of the aforementioned films. It appears to have some age and you can see on one of the close-up pics that there is a residue around the base of the egg that looks like where the 'slime/glue' substance would have attached to the floor, like in the two movies. It is hollow, stands approx 2.5-3 feet tall and around 2 feet at its widest, weighs around 5 pounds, appears to be made from fiberglass (quite strong). It also appears to have been cast in two separate halves, glued together and then painted.
If anybody can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it!
