Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

In our case, it was the egg – the one that came with the Terrybaun egg cup & saucer we blogged about last week!

This chicken is also a piece of slipware that we recently found – the cute little figure is only 9cm tall. We thought it might be a pie funnel when we first saw it. It’s hollow but there’s no hole to let the steam out. Perhaps just a little ornament then… unless you’ve got other ideas? Its colour is reminiscent of that classic Wedgewood Jasperware blue.  Very sweet – we wouldn’t mind a flock of these!

    I have just bought a little chicken just like yours but mine is in grey, white and black. I am trying to find out any information on him, they only thing I found was you blog.

    Did you find anything out about him? He is so cute and has fantastic slip ware.

      Hi Haley,

      Thanks for dropping us a line. No, we don't know anything else about him – we'd love to see a photo of your chickadee, we've never seen another one.

        I posted a photo of him in my Instagram, here is the link http://instagram.com/p/Z8O_JbSnhq/ (not sure if that will work).

        Its a shame that we cannot find out any info, but if I do I will let you know as our cute chickens are related!
