Just in! Pillivuyt Egg Cups

Just in! Pillivuyt Egg Cups

French porcelain brand Pillivuyt offers a number of egg cup designs, the traditional pedestal silhouette being my favorite (though the little hen-shaped cup is cute, too). 

And what could be more appropriate with this classically English breakfast than British flatware designer David Mellor's English collection? The small, gently pointed teaspoon is the perfect shape for scooping out an egg.

Didriks carries a number of egg cups in a variety of materials, from Match's pewter egg cup with it's vintage feel, to Alessi's clean stainless steel design (or their playful Cico cup, great for kids), to the elegant Royal Copenhagen hand-painted porcelain egg cups.

I just used a knife to break the top off this soft boiled egg, but the edge would have been a lot cleaner if I had used the Rosle egg topper!
