Egg cup, by Christine Smith

This painted earthenware egg cup was made by the Scottish artist Christine Smith in 1980.

The egg cup has been pinched and modelled into the shape of a cockerel, and then painted with coloured glazes.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
