This exceptional antique sterling silver egg cruet set consists of six egg cups and six associated spoons, displayed on a functional original purpose-made stand.

The original hallmarked egg cups have a bell shaped form onto a circular spreading foot.

These antique silver egg cups are embellished with applied moulded girdles, in addition to applied egg decoration to each foot.

Each egg cup is further ornamented with an applied gadroon decorated border to the rim and retains the original gilt interior.

The six associated hallmarked English sterling silver spoons have been crafted in the Fiddle pattern.

Each egg cup and spoon are supported and displayed on the rounded rectangular stand, ornamented with further applied gadroon decoration.

The surface of the stand bears six circular receivers enabling the egg cups to stand securely in situ; these supports alternate with integrated receivers for the six egg spoons.

The original antique stand features a central carrying handle ornamented with exceptional scrolling leaf decoration accented with fluted designs.

The plain hallmarked strut to the handle is embellished with a contemporary engraved crest.

The upper and lower portions of the stand are connected with impressive tapering pillar style legs, accented with scrolling leaf ornamentation to the upper portions.

The stand is supported by four impressive regency style bracket style paw feet with scrolling leaf decorated terminals and floral medallions.
