Elegant vintage French hallmarked sterling silver egg cup with attached base tray or saucer and Puiforcat Elysee style machined decoration! Not quite Elysee but close enough that you could use this with pieces of that pattern and get away with it :). The French Minerve or Minerva mark, 1st titre designating .950 silver content, or 95% pure silver (higher than the .925 standard for sterling silver). Silversmith marks for Limousin & Souche, Paris c. 1905-1925. Not too many of us seem to have time to enjoy a hot breakfast, or breakfast at all, but why not slow down and enjoy life a bit more. Spoil yourself! Great for a soft boiled egg, get out a setting of your fine silver, add some toast and fruit and then spend the rest of the day in a hot bath ;).
Very good condition. A small dimple possible but no large dents, no damage or repairs. See pictures for measurements.
