An old egg and a New World

This 'globe' is actually an engraved ostrich egg dating back to 1504-1506.
It's likely that Columbus was alive when it was created and it labels his
North American discovery as Mundus Novus.

Looks pretty good for being 500+ years old.
Not your every day flea market find, is it?
