Souvenir state deviled egg collection?

Posted Thursday, January 31, 2013, at 10:48 AM

Would anyone happen to know if this is real or not?

Debbi has a customer buying a photo album and when she asked if they wanted a certain state on the front, they responded that is was for pictures of her "state deviled egg collection".

This is a new one for me and I am not even sure if they were having a little fun with us. Anyone?

Well, I can gather that everyone is as stumped as I about this "deviled egg" collection. I have Googled it several times and come up empty so if our customer leaves us a positive feedback, I will then quiz her on this.

I don't want to take a chance of ruffling any feathers before feedback though. :-)

I figure she must have meant deviled egg recipe collection. Maybe she collects recipes of deviled eggs from each state? Because visualizing molded deviled eggs sitting neatly placed inside of a curio cabinet just doesnt seem right...lol. Unless perhaps she has a way of preserving them. :/

Recipes sounds reasonable. I had not thought of that. Now when I ask her, I can have a viable possibility to mention. Thanks!

Hi, Earlier this year I bought a beautiful State picture album from you all to hold pictures of my State Souviner Deviled Egg Plates of which I have 20 different states represented in pottery versions and 4 in wood. I have a deviled egg plate collection of over 1000 plates. I know it sounds like a strange collection and it probably is but I like it. By the way the album you sent is perfect and beautifully made. It helps by letting me pick it up and take it with me when traveling as for the state of Virginia I have 3 different plates so having just the state name doesn't show me what I have. Found you when I googled state deviled egg plates as I continue to look for ones I don't have. Thanks!

That is amazing Egg Plate! I never asked you on eBay but I am sure glad you found me here. I never really knew there were dishes made for State Deviled Eggs. Do they have different recipes?

I will also pass along your compliment to Debbi. She takes pride in her work.

These are older plates and don't except for the indentations for the eggs themselves have anything to do with eggs. They do have information about the states themselves and different landmarks. Texas has things like the star of Texas and the Alamo. Virginia has Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello and such. While reading your blog about my purchase from your wife I remembered her asking me which state I wanted on the front of the album which let me know this was about my purchase from her. Thanks for a funny story and as I continue to tell my kids the world is getting smaller and smaller!

"world is getting smaller and smaller" is oh, so true. I've written about our cats before and had responses from Great Britain and Australia.

Our eBay sales have made it smaller as well. We have friends we will never meet from all around the globe, but not out of this world, yet.

So, the egg plates are like to spoon rests, thimbles, magnetic state outlines and shot glasses we often see (and collect) in the gift shops. Now that I have a frame of reference, I seem to remember seeing some in different places.
