Exclusive to the National Trust, this rustic egg cup was lovingly hand-thrown by Paul Jessop & Marion Lewis on our Barrington Court estate.

This neutral sage green variety was created especially for us to sit with our "Wilderness" collection this season.

The egg cup shape itself was fashioned especially for the National Trust to expand the range.

Paul the potter designed these with egg size variation in mind.

Therefore these egg cups are designed to be able to accept eggs of different sizes.

They have a sturdy base to hold it still while you crack open an egg.

Start your day off the right way with a soft boiled egg and toast soldiers.

Complete the set with our mug, jug and pie dish.

This artisan pottery range is made for us on our Barrington Court estate, Somerset by Paul Jessop and Marion Lewis.

Their version of this design classic keeps alive all of the traditional skills associated with British Slipware Country Pottery.

The materials they use are few and all locally sourced: a local Devon red clay for the main pots and a ball clay from Cornwall for the decoration or slip.

There are two methods of throwing egg cups, one is to weigh each small ball of clay and throw individual small lumps, the other is called throwing off the hump.

This is where a number of egg cups are thrown from one large lump of clay. Among the potters there is a difference of opinion as to which is the best way, so some are thrown one way whilst the rest are thrown the other.

They are then left to dry for at least a week before the first firing in the kiln. The first firing known as "biscuit firing” takes over thirty-six hours, once biscuit fired the jugs are then hand glazed before being fired again this time to a higher temperature.This also takes a further thirty-six hours.

These are special products with provenance.

Dimensions: 6 x 5.5 cm diameter approx.

Material: Red earthenware clay

Care Instructions: Hand wash recommended but is also dishwasher safe
