Majolica egg cups are very rare. Individual pieces were very often broken, and it is so nice to have a complete set. This majolica piece was made in England circa 1880. The English love soft boiled eggs and made delightful and unusual egg cups. The condition of this unusual piece is perfect. The three egg cups can be removed from the basket. The holder has a handle and a basketweave pattern. The entire piece has vines that surround it. Imagine this used for Easter with Easter eggs displayed. This is a majolica collector’s dream.
