Victorian Silverplate Egg Cruet with Cranberry Glass Center - Service for 6

Victorian Silverplate Egg Cruet with Cranberry Glass Center - Service for 6

$350.00

Found at market in the north of England, we are pleased to present an especially magnificent example of an egg cruet. Lavishly produced with delicate pierced details and ruffled edges throughout, this exquisite cruet stands on decorative feet ready to grace the breakfast table or brunch buffet.

The exceptional set consists of 6 individual, removable silverplate egg cups sitting securely on posts, along with 6 coordinating spoons resting between each egg cup. A decoratively engraved swing handle with a bead edge allows for ease of transport from the kitchen to the table. What makes this gorgeous egg cruet even more special is the original, richly colored cranberry glass dish gleaming proudly at center. Intended to hold finishing salt, this sparkling dish adds a touch of regal color and contrasts beautifully with the gleaming finish of the silver.

Produced by the silversmiths of the Army & Navy Cooperative Society of London, this egg cruet set is a pristine example of the Victorian near-obsession of providing a proper method for serving each and every item of food.  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. 

Whether displaying a half dozen perfectly-timed eggs or incorporating one or two of the removable cups onto a festive tray for breakfast-in-bed, we are certain this egg cruet will become one of the most beloved pieces in your collection, elevating each morning with a lasting sparkle and timeless elegance.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1900. In very good restored antique condition. Egg Cruet measures 7.75" in diameter x 8" tall. Egg Cups measure 2.5" x 1.75", 6 spoons measure 5". Original price $595.00.
