For When You Need to Eat A Dozen Eggs at Once

Well, here it is; the plate that hold a dozen eggs. It appears that only 1 out of eleven stayed behind to guard the rest of his yet-to-hatched siblings. I thought of Nessa when I found this the other day. Her ceramic collection here on the AWMOK is legendary! Girl if you want this, message me at windupkitty@gmail.com

I tried photographing this on my white couch as the other one was occupied, but it really didn’t show up. So, I had to compromise and include the spokesmodels. The little grey girl is Hopper whom I’ve been calling Choochie for awhile now. She is ancient and surly and loathes her neighbor on the couch, but ignores him for the sake of staying warm. Casper is the great wild white who does not give a crap that the the Chooch hates him. He came to me mostly dead and finds her pettiness funny. Casper rises above all things and is sage.

I have no idea how this is, there are no marks by a manufacturer or artist and it’s covered in crazing…Must be fairly old….I’ve never been in a situation where I’ve needed to serve a dozen eggs at once, but then the day is young and I am young at heart…At least, this is at my disposal should the occasion arise!

    First of all, the kitty photo kills me. That white butterball in the white bed is killing me. I’ve never owned a white cat but I LOVE them.

    Second of all, that egg dish is insane! Usually egg plates are flatter and just have indentations in the plate for the eggs to balance in. But these cracked half eggs are fantastic.

    The fact that so much room is taken up by the unhatched eggs is nutty. Why didn’t they just leave the chick poised on her one egg and leave room for 6 more eggs? As a lover of deviled eggs, 18 is better than 12.

    This is a superbly kitschy piece!

    Does the Nessa “Gum Parker” Kitty look like your “Casper?” .. Are his ears shaded brown???…or is it the lighting??.. Can we get him to lay on his back???…smile

    Deviled eggs are one of my favorite snacks ever!

    Sad that this one yellow bird is sitting on top of an area where his potential brothers or sisters will be laid to rest.

    Bring on the deviled eggs!

    Wow, could I have made a few more typos? Heck, I can’t even count…a dozen =12, not eleven, right?! :)

    I’m glad you guys like this! I’ve never had a deviled egg, but I guess it does make sense that it’s supposed to serve them up!

    Yeah, Casper is my true love. Back in his wild days, I witnessed him head butt and half-nelson a full grown raccoon that was trying to take his food (raccoon barely escaped!). Now, he is the official foster dad of any kittens or sick cats that happen to need some comforting; a role that was self appointed.

    He’s actually creamy colored with orange ears, face and tail stripes, and an orange racing stripe down his back…poor guys is cross-eyed too :)

    He kinda DOES look Nessa’s kitty gum parker!! ONe of his favorite lounging positions…I”ll update my profile photo so you can see :)
