Six boiled eggs can be served in style with this Victorian-era egg cruet service. The tray is adorned in a "basket weave" motif while the parcel gilt, pierced egg cups and central condiment server add a luxurious touch. Such egg cruets were commonplace on the Victorian breakfast table. Etiquette required the egg to be eaten directly from the shell, which would be delicately broken as to allow one to use an egg spoon to consume the delicacy.

Did You Know?
Silver egg cups were often gold gilded in order to prevent staining that occurred from contact with the sulfur from the eggs. Such contact was believed to negatively impact the flavor.
