So true about things coming and going out of fashion and things like china tea cups being 'the' only way to drink tea - huge smile!

Hello our Mara, so hope you both slept well and some sunshine emerging.. Very Happy

I don't mind Coffee in any types of mugs, or cups, the flavour always seems the same, but tea in a non china cup or mug, just isn't nice to be able to taste the full flavour of the tea.. siptea

Nope, it's bucketing down rain and is apparently going to continue to do so for well over the next week - sob!

Can remember when my Glen would gently grumble about holding the china tea cups (something to do with the size of men's fingers - grin) ... so I zipped right out and bought a few china mugs to match the tea cups for the gentleman. No excuses now - smile.

Hurray the Coddlers finally arrived... Very Happy

Just taken these photo's of both sides, one with flowers is the small one, and the other with two blue tits and a wren which I bought as I realised that there are bigger ones to buy.

Thankyou so much for mentioning yours our Maisie, which of course got me interested to buy these, and so looking forward soon in making some Coddled Eggs..

Thankyou our Joelle, yes maybe the big ones will be the best, as at the time of getting one I just thought that would be the size for all, but then looking again I saw later the large ones, so I got one of them as well..
They are so very well made, strong too, and the lids screw on securely..

Very pretty they are. I don't fancy coddled eggs though as they are barely cooked. Poached eggs are nice though.

I do like poached eggs, and boiled, scrambled too, infact any way really, but thought it would be nice to try the coddled eggs as I had never heard of them before.

It's interesting the recipes that can be made as well, so I will give them a try, and if not preferred, these will make a nice ornament in my kitchen.. Very Happy

I will use the larger one for now...

I think if you cook them long enough they will be just like a boiled egg only the whites won't be as tough. A cross between a boiled and poached I think. The interesting thing is you can add things like gated cheese etc and then eat them out of the lovely china cup that they are cooked in., less fiddly than poaching or lifting boiled eggs out of the water and then having to get the top off too.

It will be so nice to eat it from out of the coddler, and I will have an experiment with the recipes too.
I will have a try most likely tomorrow, it's always nice to try something new.. Very Happy

I think, we should do an experiment here.
The egg coddler is only a container for the egg in order to cook it by immersing the container in boiling water.
So I think Captain and myself should look at ways for making a poor man's egg coddler, I will wash out an empty cat food tin and try that, I wonder what Captain may try, perhaps a bucket for feeding a multitude eh?

Very Happy That's a great Idea Nev, wow this will be interesting to see yours and Captains way of making them.. Very Happy
Erm, I am a bit full, so maybe if you need a testerer then maybe Captain can test yours, and visa-versa.. chuckles

Hmmm ... I suppose if the little plastic re-cover lids were added to the cat food cans or even larger coffee cans, it may work, Nev.

Now that is a thought, and nearer to the original concept is an old glass coffee jar with the metal screw on lid. Thank you Mara he he. (Plastic ones will melt and collapse)

Well, so much for the idea of plastic re-seal lids on cat food cans - grin!

Yup, the glass jars are sure to work ... not nearly as elegant as eating from the China Coddler once it's cooked though. flower

Are you supposed to eat the egg from the pot ? if so Nev definitly use the old Cat food tin eat the egg then you can recycle the can and wont have to wash up ,
And your Coffee jar with a screw lid is a good idea also a Jam jar has a metal lid , it will be a bit hot to lift out , chuckles

Yes it seems that it's to be eaten from the pot, so pretty that would look on a breakfast tray with some toast.

Just picturing in mind having mine served on the tray with the cat food tin, or coffee/Jam jar, that would wake my taste-buds up for sure.. chuckles

Maisie I have had a little look around with the information you said the ornament is called 3 pigs in a car and is one of many Pig based ornaments its from around 1900 to 1919 the DRGM stands for , Deutsch Reichs Gebrachmunster , basically its a copyrite notice , its termed as Art Nouveau and known as a Fairing, this I looked up and a Fairing is a Satirical image of the day would often have 2 in a set apposing each other like a Granddad on one a Grandmother on the other , but they were made to be give away as prizes hence the term Fair ing as Fairs were a huge user giving these away as prizes in Victorian times , many are now very valuable and seriously collected
The HS more than likely was the actual makers initials as most companies had a general stamp and then the maker has a mark ,so if a load came back they could say well these were made by so and so ,
I have found one for sale at about £30 but is in an auction on Ebay so it may be interesting to see how it goes ,
again a lovely little thing to hand down it says its 3.5 by 4.5 inches ,and many were money boxes pin boxes or match holders , Coffee
