This is a small Bisto ware vase or possible even a toothbrush holder(!) with a fantastic dragon design, dating from the late 1920s/30s- i love the puffy clouds. The bowl above has to be one of the nicest surprises i've had from buying on Ebay. It turned out to be far larger and far more beautiful than anticipated. The sprig design on the outside is the same print as that used on an aesthetic movement teaset i have already blogged about.
