TRANSFERWARE EGG CUPS AND STAND

According to The Dictionary of Blue and White Printed Pottery 1780 - 1880 by Coysh and Henrywood, "Blue printed egg cups can be found in two shapes, the usual modern cup with a pedestal foot and an earlier design which is ring-shaped that can be used either way up.  Egg stands may be found in circular or oval form to hold four or six eggs and usually formed the centre section of supper sets or breakfast sets."   Below is a Spode Rome (also known as Tiber) pattern egg stand and egg cups.

  1. I love this. Must be quite rare...never see them.

  2. Egg cups with a stand are not common. However, sometimes you find them with the entire breakfast or supper set! Thanks for looking at my blog.
