Ivan is a hand made English silver plate egg coddler.
He has a chased lid design with a hen finial.
Spiral dragon design legs and contains a spirit burner.
Could not find any makers marks on Ivan however he is possibly made by Walker and Hall based on leg design.
Today this is a usable piece for all who enjoy serving eggs for breakfast, even a fabulous way to present boiled, scramble and poached eggs at brunch!
