Egg cups in unusual materials

Egg cups are usually made of ceramic, metal, wood, glass or plastic, but they can be made with anything else. Or at least that's what we're obliged to believe after seeing what we've seen. Sometimes the material used can be so rare or so beautiful that no extra decoration is needed - that's what happens most of the time with all the different varieties or marble, for instance. But it can also happen that the unusual material is used in order to allow detailed decoration - that concerns papier maché, used because it's easier to produce perfectly looking painted pieces with papier maché than with wood.
