Eggs With Legs - Buckle Edition - Egg Cup & Chocolate Egg
Better than any bonnet, this fabulous hand painted, individually decorated egg cup was created by the celebrated ceramic designer Mary Rose Young, and it’s the ultimate breakfast accessory. 2021 brings with it two stunning new designs.
Eggs With Legs were created exclusively for Harvey Nichols; each extravagant egg cup comes topped with a foil-wrapped hollow chocolate egg. When you’ve devoured the chocolate, you will be left with a work of art that will ensure your boiled egg is always the best-dressed breakfast in town.
Available in two styles; the Daisy Edition is playfully kitsch and features a daisy fastening on the shoe, gold legs, dotty boots and a matching foiled egg, while the joyful Buckle Edition has a slightly more bling buckle and brilliant blue breeches. Only 100 of each of the two designs have been produced and no two egg cups are quite the same. Each one, having been crafted and painted by hand, is completely unique. So, colours and patterns may vary slightly from those pictured.
Born in Uxbridge, Mary Rose Young spent her childhood constantly on the move, nurturing in her a passion for painting and reimagining the interiors of each new house. Finally settling down, she studied ceramics at Wolverhampton Art College during the height of the punk revolution, something that clearly inspired her love of shocking colour and genre-redefining design. Her first pieces were sold at a Bristol street market in the early 1980s; she has now achieved worldwide fame with stockists from Canada to Ukraine. Mary Rose describes her style as “Alice in Wonderland”, a concept that can be instantly understood by anyone who falls down the rabbit hole into her vibrant and flamboyant workshop in The Forest of Dean.
