This item is for a set of 2 vintage egg cup holders. They are each marked on the base with "JAPAN". The ecru colored ceramic egg cups are hand painted with a floral and leaf design. They stand about 3 1/2" in height and are about 2 1/2" in circumference. The egg cups are in good vintage condition. I do not see any chips or damage to the hand painting. The cups do not have any chips either, but the is some aging of the ceramic glaze and one small hairline minor crack at the rim of one of the cups. Overall, they are in good condition for the age. Because of the "JAPAN" mark, i would date them before the 1940's.
