A fine lay

On doing a bit of internet surfing, i came across this wonderful set of egg cups and a stand. Marked as "BEST P&B", dating this piece to the late 1860s into the 1870s, it is decorated with a purplish transfer print design in typical Victorian fashion. The fact that this piece has survived with only minor blemishes is a marvel as their utilitarian purpose would mean that they were possibly used quite frequently.

About Me

My photo
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.
