Flower paintings and flower transfer pictures (as well as combinations of both) are an absolute classic for tableware in general, and for egg cups in particular. It could be argued that the most boring pieces are to be found in this category, but maybe the risk of being boring is just the price to pay when aiming to achieve absolute classicism. Anyway, flowers seem to be here to stay.
