I absolutely adore French transferware, especially when it has birds on it. So when I spotted this sweet little egg cup at a big market in France, I couldn't leave it behind! The egg cup has a lovely pattern of flowering branches all around with two birds, one on the top and one on the bottom half of the egg cup, in the central image area. It's in great shape with just a few minor flea bites and a hairline crack that's towards the back. There's a yellowish stain on the inside that's likely from a previous price tag sticker. There is no maker's mark or blind mark on this piece but the design is typical of French faïence or transferware, as is the color blue used (a nice navy with undertones of green). SIZE: 2.125" tall x 2" diameter at base FREE SHIPPING within the US. For international shipping, additional charges apply.

I found this sweet little enamelware egg cup at a market in Brugge, Belgium. It has a nice wide base to collect the shells when peeling the egg. This listing is for the one (1) egg cup shown in the photos. The pattern is the Saxony or blue onion design, originally Danish but quite popular in most northern European countries. The egg cup does have some chips and signs of wear but personally, I actually love that part – it lends the piece some authenticity and history. SIZE: 3.375" diameter at base, 2" diameter cup opening, 2.5" tall FREE SHIPPING within the US. For international shipping, additional charges apply.

Enamelware egg cups are getting quite difficult to find! These four were originally found in France and are now looking for a new home. They remind me of Sunday mornings when I was little – my dad rarely cooked but Sundays his job was to boil the eggs for breakfast and we would eat them from little white egg cups (porcelain ones, not enamelware like these darlings). This listing is for one (1) egg cup randomly selected from the four available. All four have similar signs of wear – all have enamel chipping off at the base and along the rim, which used to have a blue border that can still be faintly seen in a few areas. None are marked on the bottom. They would be great to use as originally intended or find a new function for them, like holding matches next to a candle holder or cotton swaps on a narrow bathroom ledge. They even make great little flower vases (I used egg cups with flowers as place cards at my wedding dinner).
