This Royal Worcester porcelain, "Skippety Tale" pattern, Maxime size, egg coddler is in pristine condition. The Maxime size is the largest size coddler. It is about 3 3/4" in diameter at the widest point, and is almost 5 1/4" to the top of the lid's ring. The shiny chrome screw off lid has no scratches. It comes in it's origional box, with a recipe book and a printed recipe for coddled eggs. The box has some very light age related wear. The pattern features a happy bunch of animals (mice, a rabbit with a carrot, hedgehog, butterflies and a squirrel with acorns.) as well as fruits, vegetables and flowers. It is marked with a Royal Worcester stamp on the bottom. T are no marks overall and the interior is clean. This is a great piece and I am happy to bring it up for auction.
