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!
