This one is sometimes listed as Crown Lynn. The colour is a possible but the lip of the cup part is a lot thicker than my squirrel and the whole thing is more coarsely moulded. It has more obvious join lines as well:

I also saw, again, an 'Old Mother Hubbard' egg cup that the stallholder had labelled as English. I think Heather has been told by a reliable source that CLP didn't make nursery rhyme egg cups. There's still a likely range of possible shapes between six and at least 12.

If you take a look at UK ebay or eggcup lists from the UK you will find the nursery rhyme ones. That is what convinced me ours probably werent crown lynn. I have Little Bo-Peep and the colour is almost pink over white, quite different to the Crown Lynn ones... Smile
