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!
