You'd be hard-pressed (and hard-boiled?) to find a finer-looking eggcup than this here piece of serving wear. Such is the sheer amount of class that Italian maker Alessi imbues into its products. This comes from Marcel Wanders, who has created a series of objects under the Dressed moniker; here, old-style forms are reinvented in contemporary interpretations. The cup brings to mind thegrand and beautiful tables of yesteryear. And that stainless-steel spoon has its own little hammer at the end for smashing that eggshell in impeccable fashion.
