A perfect example of the Victorians' near-obsession for providing a proper method to serve each and every item of food, is the egg cruet. Sometimes referred to as an egg frame, it was a decorative serving piece made precisely for holding and serving boiled eggs.

The earliest known examples of the egg cruet date all the way back to the 1740s, but it was during the Victorian era when the egg cruet became all the rage. The design of an egg cruet consisted of a stand for with two to eight removable egg cups, together with hooks for holding egg-spoons, and usually attached to a base plate with feet.

Found at market in the north east of England, we're pleased to present a lovely example of an egg cruet.
