1960's Vintage Egg Cups - West Germany


Set of five vintage plastic egg cups in good vintage condition. Made in West Germany in the 1960's by manufacturer of popular household items, Emsa.

Emsa GmbH is an innovative medium-sized (SME) German manufacturer of household goods, garden equipment and garden accessories who has achieved to establish an internationally recognised trademark for a variety of niches.

Emsa was originally founded on 1 April 1949 by Franz Wulf as „Franz Wulf & Co Plasticwarenfabrik" in Greven.

A little drip-catcher made of plastic and formed like a butterfly was the company's first product. After drip-catchers of different forms the company started producing pastry-cutting wheels, icing bags and comparable kitchen accessories.

On 1 October 1956 the company moved from Greven to larger premises in Emsdetten and added floristry utensils to its range of products.

Against the background of their location in Emsdetten and its main river Ems the firm's name was altered to today's "Emsa" on 29 December 1964.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis.
