Here is an unusual little treat for you collectors of kitchen memorabilia, an egg cutter or egg opener. This is a Victorian era tool designed to aid in cracking the shell on a soft boiled egg. When closed it measures 4 inches long by 2.5 inches wide. It is made out of iron and has wonderful scrolling decorative elements cast into the sides of the piece. On the hinge it says “Pat Jan 4.87.”. The condition is very good with a wonderful patina that has developed on the surface of the metal. The needle points used for breaking the shell on the egg are all present and quite sharp. The hinge is slightly loose, but not to the point where it is in any danger of coming apart. Overall, it is a very unusual item that is seldom seen in the U.S. (These tend to be much more common in Victorian England where a soft boiled egg was standard breakfast fare.)
