Egg coddlers have a lid, made out of metal, or porcelain, that is attached to the top of the coddler before cooking.

Many coddlers are manufactured with a set of screw-on threads at the lip of the coddler.

With the lid off, the coddler body stands nominally 2½ inches tall. It measures 4 inches from the base to the top of the lifting ring.

This size can also be used to warm up an individual serving of baby food. With the lid off, the coddler body stands 3¼ inches tall. This is currently the only size of coddler that RW produces.

When the eggs are cooked to the desired firmness, the coddler is lifted from the boiling water, the lid removed, and breakfast is served, in a lovely decorated dish.

Egg coddlers are often painted or glazed with a design.

Between the years of 18 the last two numbers of the the years were occasionally used to indicate the year of manufacture but in 1867 a more organised method of date codes was introduced, with a letter beneath the standard mark, 1867 used the letter A, 1868 used B, 1869 C and so on.

In 1891 Royal Worcester introduced the words 'Royal Worcester England' beneath the standard Worcester mark with the addition of a dot to the left of the crown in 1892, followed by a further dot to the right of the crown in 1893, and this continued until 1903 with a total of twelve dots, six either side of the crown.

The Worcester Porcelain Factory was founded in 1751 by Dr John Wall, Royal Worcester marks incorporating a crown above a circle were first introduced in 1862 and combined the number 51 within the circle signifying the year Dr Wall founded the original company.

This printed mark was used in may colours, often puce, green or blue in earlier pieces, mostly black marks were used from around 1950 to the mid 60's.

There are many different patterns and designs, which makes them highly suitable as practical gifts for the kitchen, or for addition to the china collection.
