The right size but the wrong green

egg cups

As both Wedgewood and the colour green are constant themes on this blog, I thought I’d write a short posting on two green eggcups purchased today for a dollar.

They were found at the local hospice, along with a small silver-plated cake slice and two rice bowls – of no particular age – but purchased because you guessed it – they are a nice green colour.

There was some initial discussion as to whether the items were in fact cups but once home and eggs were shown to fit I was proven wrong, (I’m not sure what else I thought they were now).

One thing for sure they are not Wedgewood but one of his imitators, you can tell by the poor quality of the cameo, the lack of markings and the general lack of finesse in the form – oh and that they’re the wrong shade of green.
