Even for the working classes, breakfast in the Victorian period was a veritable feast. It generally included a number of courses, and several different types of food: from fish and meat, to fruit and bread. Eggs had recently become part of the standard breakfast, and this was the first period in which eggcups were widely used. This eggcup was rather novel: one would break the egg into it, discard the shell, and then boil the cup itself.
