brown patterned egg cup was taken off the Titanic at
Southampton by a maid from Warrington. She was in the
service of Edward J Smith, but just before Titanic sailed
her relieved her of her duties. Whether or not she was
sacked and stole this egg cup is not known. The egg cup came
up for auction in 1992 and is one of only a very small
number of pre maiden voyage chinaware from the Titanic. It
is extremely rare.
