Victorian Silverplate Egg Cruet - Service for 6

Victorian Silverplate Egg Cruet - Service for 6

$250.00

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 in the Lincolnshire county of north east England, we are pleased to present an especially lovely example of an egg cruet. With a pretty scalloped edge and ball feet, this egg cruet consists of 6 egg cups with delicately ruffled rims sitting securely on posts, along with 6 petite spoons suspended from the central handle. Produced by the Roberts & Belk silversmiths of Sheffield, 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 very good antique condition. Egg Cruet measures 8" x 8.5", Egg Cups measure 2.5" x 2", 6 spoons measure 4.5".
