Vintage Footed Egg Cup Holder Vase - Floral Pattern with Jagged Edge
The present was an egg laid by the past that had the future inside its shell. Zora Neale Hurston
Cracked eggs aren't always a delight, but this little charmer adds nothing but cute character to your kitchen. Some people would call this an egg cup for its ability to securely hold a soft boiled egg. Others would call it a vase for a mini bouquet or a holder for small kitchen items like toothpicks, or demitasse spoons or fancy wands of crystalized sugar. Here in the Vintage Kitchen, we like the soft boiled idea.
A bright addition to your breakfast table, eggs cups used to be available in a wide variety of interesting shapes. This one comes footed with three-pronged feet and a pretty floral arrangement on both sides.
Of course, it would add just as much charm to your space if it held onto a mini succulent garden or a blossom clipped from the great outdoors. Of course, It would also be just as functional as a small container for those picks or that mini flatware too. Any way you choose to look at it, this small wonder from decades past is still here to be of very useful assistance in your modern-day space however you decide to incorporate it.
