dog cosy

Egg Cosy (England), ca. 1900; silk and linen on linen foundation;
H x W: 9 x 7.5 cm (3 9/16 x 2 15/16 in.); Gift of Sabina Gathedral; 1978-110-1
This lazy Sunday I'm bringing you a dog-headed egg cosy from the collections of the Cooper-Hewitt.  Tell me, does anyone still have boiled eggs in the morning and have they cozies for them?  Is this a lost craft/practice?  I'm interested in hearing from you.
Here's the link to the record for this object: http://cprhw.tt/o/2CMuv/
