ribbed - for your viewing pleasure

This jug would originally have been part of a toilet set - comprising at least of a jug, wash bowl, soap dish, toothbrush holder. It's pattern name is Cyprus and is part of the Oriental Ivory range. I think the colours sit beautifully in a contemporary interior design scheme. Wash jugs like this are wonderful for displaying large, rustic flower bouquets because they have such wide neck openings.

I have the abbey bowl in blue and white and was wondering what is something like this worth?

well, that would depend entirely on the size,purpose,condition of the bowl in question. Being Blue & White makes it more saleable simpy because of the sheer number of B&W collectors out there. But it's not an unusual pattern so it would need something special about it to command a high price tag.

Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
