When I heard they were expecting, I immediately started plotting the perfect baby present. What better thing for a pair of antique scholars than a modern-day loving cup?
|Nottingham area loving cup from England, dated 1812. I really enjoy the incised lines and the roulette decoration on this. |
I did not extrude the handles, as I currently do not have an extruder, and wanted to try pulling a thinner handle to see how it would look.
|The stamps read "Welcome to the World Nora"|
While the piece above has a higher rim than the other, I felt that with the placement of the handles, and the fact that the handles were pulled, made the other one look more proportioned. I thought (and hope!) this was a very loving gift to give to a very lovely little girl!
