Olier & Caron Art Deco silver egg cup

This very pretty silver egg cup was made by the French company Olier & Caron during the Art Deco period. The round domed foot supports a narrow stem below an 18 sided cup. The interior of the cup is gilded. The top is stamped with the Minerva silver mark and the maker's mark for Olier & Caron (a rising sun above "OC" and a star below in a diamond shaped cartouche). There is an indistinct stamp below the stem. This is the gift for the person who has everything but would like to eat their breakfast boiled egg in style!

Weight: 1.2ozs - 33gms
