Antique Victoria Hotel Silverplate Egg Cruet - Service for 6

Antique Victoria Hotel Silverplate Egg Cruet - Service for 6

$295.00

An example of the Victorian near-obsession of providing a proper method for serving each and every item of food, is the egg cruet. Sometimes referred to as an egg frame, it was made precisely for holding and serving boiled eggs. The earliest known examples of the egg cruet date back to the 1740s, but it was the Victorian era that saw the peak of the egg cruet's popularity. 

Found at market outside of London, we are pleased to present an especially lovely and unique example of an egg cruet. Typically produced for home use, this very rare cruet was made exclusively for the Victoria Hotel located in the town of Sidmouth on the spectacular English channel coast. Crested with the hotel's name in the center of the sturdy stand, this egg cruet consists of 6 egg cups sitting securely on posts in neat rows on either side of the central handle.

With its storied provenance and sparkling presence, we are certain this egg cruet will become one of the most beloved pieces in your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent antique condition. Egg Cruet measures 7.25"H  x 7" x 5.25", Egg Cups measure 2.75" x 1.75".
