It was a set of stacked trays on dowels, with holes just the right size to cradle eggs. There was a four or five tier holder like this in a passing shot in the movie and we were charmed by it. Eggs definitely weren't refrigerated then (they generally still aren't in Europe) and eggs in a manor kitchen like the one in Gosford Park were probably just gathered fresh that morning anyway.
Well, imagine our surprise then to see an almost identical egg holder over at Wisteria! This could add serious charm to a farmhouse-style kitchen, and we think it would make a fabulous utensil holder. Imagine slotting whisks and spatulas in their own holes, instead of all jumbled in a big jar.
