Tingleby lidded cup in the new edition of Brigitte. They suggest you can use them for sugar, tea or sweeties. I'm sure there are lots of other uses as well. In our house they are used for all manner of condiments; salt, ground pepper, spices, mustards, horseradish, as well as sauces, stocks, gravy, jelly. The bathroom is littered with them as toothbrush holders, cotton-bud containers and floss holders.
And they fit perfectly under all espresso makers!
Thanks for the heads up from Anna at Nicestuff
