There were times in my life when I had very little money. Obviously not destitute or starving, but having to be very careful, and living on debt to a greater or lesser degree. Over the years I acquired many amazing
things at jumble sales, and later, in charity shops (as well as many quickly discarded and forgotten things). But. Occasionally Jim and I went to antiques shops, and occasionally we would persuade ourselves to buy something we didn't really need and couldn't really
afford (although no children starved as a result). Some of these also have probably been forgotten, and even perhaps regretted.
But not these rabbits, bearing their leafy fruit bowl. I love them as much now as when I first saw them. I love the whole object - it makes me smile - but most of all I love the depth of the colour of the green majolica glaze.
They now sit on my dining room sideboard, and occasionally look after some bananas for me.
