Coffee To Go?

In New York, the Met's current, predynastic-Egypt show promises to reveal "the beginning of everything", which includes this chirpy cup that's roughly five-and-a-half thousand years old. Could it once have been a familiar sight at some extremely ancient version of Starbucks?

Looks like half an egg - or is it half a chick?
