History and use
This egg ring is an interesting example of 1970s domestic gadgetry. Still in its original packaging it also illustrates the advertising style of the period.

As a collapsible egg ring it makes for an interesting example of the many domestic laboursaving devices produced at the time.

The original packaging also relates to the history of packaging and commercial marketing in Queensland.
