My husband just returned from Istanbul and was telling me about trying Turkish coffee. I was curious about this method of brewing and serving coffee, so I started searching the internet . And to my surprise, I found these amazing Turkish coffee cups on Amazon. Even if I never make a cup of Turkish coffee, I knew I could find some delightful uses for these amazing little jewels. Costing only $20 each, I was thrilled to find a ceramic insert in the cup. So custards, pot de cremes, sorbets - your serving dish awaits! The perfect little sized vessel to end a meal.
They shipped directly from Istanbul, Turkey and arrived within just a couple of days.
Each one comes with a rhinestone embellished saucer.
Another adorable find from Ebay- a reproduction egg cup in silver plate!
His head comes off, so you can fill the egg with whatever you desire- egg, sorbet, mousse!
An exact copy of an egg cup made by Sampson Mordan at the turn of the last century.
Sampson Mordan died in 1843.
The cost to purchase it and have it shipped from the UK was about $35.00.
It is truly adorable!
For spring, I placed the egg cup under a glass cloche with the new velvet strawberries from Hot Skwash!
