Pastoral Davenport ~ Rural Scenes
Here is one of my favorite patterns ever...Rural Scenes or Pastoral Davenport by Royal Staffordshire, depicted on a very rare double egg cup. These are large enough to be used as a juice cup or glass...I've seen these referred to as punch or juice cups before. The scene depicts a farm with cattle grazing in the yard, pigs in the foreground and a boy feeding chickens. There is a huge thatched English birdhouse to the left and a covered bard with hay in the back, closer to the house. The border is a unique and beautiful blend of berries and ivy on lattice.
I use one of these in my dressing area to hold some of my make up brushes...they are great for that, for toothpicks, lipsticks, bobbi pins, eyelines, lipliners, etc.
