La Esterella

I guess Esterella is a play on Esther, as in Lambrechts, and the Spanish estrella, star. The obvious connection is in the Sephardi community, but it would be interesting to know why Russian immigrant Charly Schleimovitz thought this stage name would work for his client and wife, the Antwerp nightingale, the Belgian Zarah Leander.

Godzjumenas has also posted (scroll to bottom) an intriguing illustration of the pre-industrial fabrication of Easter eggs.
