Bristol blue egg cup with white enamel glass rim

Stock Number: 4925

This is what we believe to be a scarce English, Bristol blue egg cup with a white glass rim dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.
 
The egg cup is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot commensurate with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The egg cup has a saucer-topped bowl with an everted, white glass lip and measures 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on an extruded short, plain stem and a conical foot that measures 4.5 cm (1.8 inches) in diameter.  The egg cup itself is 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  The foot is slightly out of round but that is not unusual in egg cups of this period and we can see no evidence that it has been ground.
