There is always a certain ritual associated with boiling eggs: the timing has to be just right – as does the presentation. Thus, it is not very surprising that a lot of attention is also given to the design of egg cups. In the "Classic" egg cup, the egg sits enthroned on an elegant silver cup with a stem. In Sieger by Fürstenberg’s "Matroschischka & Matroschka" design, the breakfast egg is even served inside a porcelain egg – and bears a surprising resemblance to the world-famous Fabergé counterpart. J.L Coquet also presents "Slider" egg cups, which are completely plated with gold or platinum and fitted with a magnet, so that they stay attached to the saucers despite their "slanted" attitude. Egg cups like these are very eye-catching when they are put on the table.
They often have to match a dinner service however. That’s when classic egg cups, such as "Berlin" from KPM are ideal, because the egg cups are made of white porcelain and totally free of all design twirls. Egg cups like these can of course also be used on other occasions to present little titbits as well.
