I never really saw the point of these little dishes growing up - it seemed silly to have them lying around seemingly empty and useless until I realised how pretty they are, which is enough reason in itself to have a couple, but also how handy they are for popping earrings in overnight or change for the bus/parking.
This little one is made by Crown Derby and is in the 'Derby Posies' pattern.
Generally speaking I'm not the world's biggest fan of florals, but when it comes to china I adore them!
The dainty daisies and the swirly gilding really caught my eye.
The problem is now I have one I'd like more!
