first class veg

Newly added to the Powell & Bishop (P&B) part of my collection is this great vegetable dish. It was sold with the label, "missing lid - as seen", but I wonder if there ever was one? certainly, there appears to be no wear to the glaze around the rim, there is also no ledge for a typical lid to rest on, and with a lid it would be a very substantially sized piece of table ware - more of a tureen. My thought was that it was a vegetable serving dish but i'm not sure if there was such a thing, without a lid? Anyhoo, it's in a pattern called Trentham which leaves and butterflies and a little dragonfly under one handle. Below is a close up a handle - dotted with gilding and in a half heart shape. Gorgeous.

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.
