Interest in Egg Plates
« on: October 13, 2005, 09:38:20 AM »
I found this website on egg plates the other day which helped me identify 2 plates which I had, suspected were modern but couldn't find.

I dug it up again to confirm some info that I posted to Doris about her Sandwich pattern piece.

Thought it might be useful to others here -

Thanks Connie, that is a really interesting site. I like egg plates - my mother has a lovely carnival one which I must get around to taking a photo of sometime.

I didn't know they eggisted either! I'd have (mistakenly) identified it as an oyster plate! I assume the internal section it what distinguishes it. What is the internal section designed to accommodate? Toasted soldiers, or something else?

There are two types that I know of - one for oysters and one for eggs. The oyster ones usually have slightly larger shell-shaped depressions I think. The egg ones have smaller ovoid depressions. They are sometimes called egg and cress plates... so now you know what goes in the middle Sue.  :wink:
