As awesome as this looks, I think it was intended for ostrich eggs. My measly chicken eggs fall right to the bottom of the mouth and don't sit upright. Instead they tilt along the bottom jawline. It's still useable, but makes it a little awkward when I decapitate my eggs.
My great neice loved. The only thing is she does not like eggs and immedately used it to carry her jewellry. How clever, she is only 4 yrs old. I loved the fact that it was pottery and not plastic. Received item quickly. Thanks very much. Hazel oliver.
This egg-cup is great and big enough for the biggest egg (a lot of eggs don't sit very well in some egg-cups) This was bought as a gift for a little boy who loves marine life and also loves to eat eggs. So a good all round "egg" cup!
