Silver Hot Water Jug (sold)
We found this little beauty in an antiques shop in Honiton and I couldn't resist it. I am guessing that it's from somewhere at the beginning of the 20th Century but if anyone knows for sure I would love to know. It's the elegance of the fluted design and the little touches like the scroll on the handle, that are so appealing. They really knew how to make things in the 'old days'. The usual pastels on board, approx 12" x 10".
It's getting pretty cold in the studio now - I must look bonkers sat there with my feet on a hotwater bottle, with fingerless mittens on and two jumpers! All for art....
