The Modern Egg Cup

You may not know this (I certainly did not) but egg cups have been used since prehistoric times; the earliest finding is from Minoan Crete. In the 15th Century egg cups were more commonly used in Europe. With such a long history, why is it that so few of us actually own any?

Here are some fabulously modern cups to hold your eggs – for Easter or for just plain old breakfast.
