50s egg cups [sold]

50s egg cups
made in Japan

Continuing the Easter theme, these ceramic egg cups from Japan would also have originally held easter eggs and been sold as gifts for Easter. It’s a great gift- after Easter the egg cups are used every day for breakfast. And who- I ask you- doesn’t love a boiled egg for breakfast?

There are many, many egg cup collectors in the world- maybe because they are small, easy to display and there are millions and millions of different types. These two sold before I had even finished writing this post. And they sold despite both being ‘care-worn’ with a little loss of paint due to use [they are over fifty years old and have obviously seen active duty!]

Egg cups! The gift that keeps on giving! Happy Easter everyone!
