A whimsical individual egg service with a fabulous figural rooster stand that is so very Victorian. The eggs are by Macintyre & Co. Ltd. and date to 1884, and the delightful rooster holder was created by Reed & Barton in Taunton, MA. The set consists of a pottery salt & pepper with screw on bases made in the form of speckled eggs and marked with a gilded "S" and "P", a single-egg cup made to look like a broken egg shell, and a stand with a rooster head handle and a rooster foot base complete with realistic looking claws.

Charming and elegant, this imaginative piece of Victorian tableware must have delighted its original owner. I can just see it arriving on a well appointed breakfast tray along with a cup of Earl Grey and the morning paper.

CONDITION is excellent antique. There is a flake under the screw on base of one egg which is not visible when the base is on, and there is a minute nick, a roughness really, on the inside tip of one point on the egg cup. Stands 6 5/8" tall, the distance from the tip of the front claw to the tip of the rear claw is 5". The S&P measure approximately 2 1/2" tall. Weighs 1 lb. 2 oz.

In the heady world of Victorian table ware this whimsical piece is a standout. It elevates serving the humble boiled egg to extraordinary heights. Enjoy!
