This is a beautiful King Size Royal Worcester, England porcelain egg coddler in the Evesham pattern featuring a leaf on one side, currants on another and a peach or plum on the third.
Every hostess should own at least one vintage egg coddler because coddling is an elegant (and quick!) way to making delicious, soft boiled eggs. So if you love soft boiled and poached eggs but they never come out right then you simply must try coddled eggs because they’re divine and, best part, with minimal effort!
Coddling is a gentle and healthy way of poaching your eggs: simply crack your eggs in the egg coddler, add your favorite fixings (bacon bits, cheese, chives) and place in a pan of boiling water for a few minutes. You then just remove the lid and scoop up all that deliciousness!
The egg coddler offers a fabulously simple alternative to spice your eggs so give it a try or gift it to someone who enjoys cooking and trying new things.

Never used an egg coddler? It's SO easy!
Using egg coddlers is a clean and easy way of poaching your eggs basically: butter the inside of the coddler, drop in your favorite fixings (spinach, feta and sun dried tomatoes or asparagus and ham – but really anything goes as long as you chop them up small), break the egg into the coddler and sprinkle some salt & pepper.
Then simply screw on the lid and stand the coddler in a pan of boiling water, taking care that the water level only reaches halfway up the porcelain body. Wait 7-8 minutes and ta-dah, you have beautiful, scrumptious coddled eggs.
