I have 5 Crown Lynn NZ Army Egg Cups (CHCH Earthquakes claimed my 6th) and one saucer that seems to fit the egg cup.
Was it normal for Crown Lynn to pair a saucer with egg cups?

Hi there, the saucer looks like a demitasse saucer
and it would go with one of these little cups that BrunoL posted ..

I sometimes see the egg cups sitting on a matching butter dish.

Really you could use a saucer if you wanted to, as it would help to keep the egg cup stable.

Thanks Ev,

I have 3 other saucer sizes, but this one is much smaller than the others.

Will keep an eye out for some of the little cups.

Just building on Ev's reply (and building on Jeremy Ashford's research), it is likely the saucer you have (which looks to be in excellent condition) would most correctly match with the demitasse cup on the right (with the more solid looking handle) - though either style would look good.
