Egg Coddlers Instead of Tea Cup Finds

My mood is certainly for a tea party outside, but the weather won't cooperate! It is either rainy, too chilly or both. My spring tea pot waits for use at a garden party.

On our recent Kentucky trip, we stopped at a few antique and flea market places. I saw a few nice cups, but nothing called to me or felt worth bringing home. I had so many at home that were even better! I did find a set of Blue Willow dessert bowls. No, I did not need them, but at $2.10 each how could I pass them up?

A stop at the Goodwill store produced these egg coddlers. Again, I have plenty but these were practically free! I had to bring them home at that price, and they are sweet with a wren on one side and two finches on the other. Do any of my readers need these egg coddlers???? Also, I am wondering if any of you USE egg coddlers?

I didn't even know there WERE such things? I'm trying to imagine how they are used. (For SURE they are beautiful!)

They are lovely!

these egg coddlers are very nice. You can use them for many occasions. The weather here is also very chilly, too cold to sit outside. But hopefully at the weekend it will get warmer. Thank you for showing this interesting egg coddlers.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Bookie,

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me. I adore your beautiful egg coddlers with the Wren and Finches. I had not heard of them before now. Gorgeous pieces. Have a great day!

Claudia, I love the fact that you collect the most unique items! I don't think I've ever eaten a coddled egg, although I have heard of them. It seems to me my grandma used to make eggs that way sometimes. BUT, I didn't know HOW she made them! Please explain to me!! I also love your collection of "knife rollers" I think they're called. Very different!

Hi Claudia: I don't even know what you do with a coddled egg holder. I love your teapot it is so pretty. Love to hear what you can do with these coddlers. Blessings, Martha
