Antique metal egg cups

Metal egg cups are far more resistant than porcelain or glass egg cups and, therefore, it is much easier to find surviving antique pieces in metal than in glass or porcelain. But that's not the only great thing about antique metal egg cups: they also tend to offer more original and elaborated forms, as this selection shows (hopefully). If you want to see an antique metal egg cup in its own natural context, as well as a very entertaining film, I encourage you to see "Das Testament des Dr Mabuse", filmed by Firtz Lang in 1932. The egg cup appears near the end of the film.
