What ever happened to Egg Cups?! Well, they are actually still around but mostly found in attics and basements, leftovers from a bygone era when they were a must have for any kitchen ware. Egg cups were made in different sizes too; some for the smaller eggs that chickens lay, and some for the larger eggs that ducks and geese lay. This particular one is for the latter, which is why I've taken a photo of it with a "large" chicken egg so that you can see how much larger the duck or goose eggs are. This egg cup is made of milk glass, and by all indications it was made by the Westmoreland Glass Company, which specialized in milk glass production from the 1920's through the 1950's when it was most popular. Some pieces were marked with the letter "W" and many came with paper labels, most of which were worn off through washing, which is the case here. This egg cup is in fine condition without chips or cracks and measures 3 5/8" in height and 2 7/8" in diameter at the top. If you haven't discovered the fun of collecting egg cups, this is a good way to get started!
