Retro Egg Cups (Set)

R250.00

Before a good friend of mine immigrated to the UK she handed me these amazing Sputnik egg cups, knowing that like her, I would fall involve with the original display packaging. Presumably the set dates to the ’50s space age, when all things designer were focused on that golden era and the excitement that life on other planets potentially promised.

Like a lot of goods produced in the 1950s, our egg cups are made from plastic, and truth be told aren’t the best quality egg cups I’ve ever seen – but they are probably some of the coolest! Just look at those little tripod feet, and the bold colours just add to the fun! Can you imagine the delight little boys and girls must have felt dipping their toast into an egg that was about to catapult into space – just awesome!

And now (with lovely Caryn’s permission) hopefully that joy will get to be experienced by a new generation of space travellers – rather reluctantly I’ve realised that being a hard boiled egg kind of girl, I’m probably never going to use these rather fabulous egg cups, but I’m hoping that someone out there will! Let the space adventures begin!

Dimensions: Each egg cup measures 3cm tall x 6cm in diameter
