Slipcast porcelain milk jug with cobalt blue transfer, by Hanne Rysgaard

I bought this Hanne Rysgaard milk jug and a smaller version as presents about five years ago. I love the elegant transformation of something usually regarded as so ordinary. Typically, I managed to convince myself to keep the large one. It reminds me of the Blue Willow pattern china that my grandmother had.

By the way the history of the Willow pattern is fascinating. Take a read of Porcelain, The Willow Pattern, and Chinoiserie” by Joseph J Portanova, New York University if you are curious.
