You already know I'm a dish-a-holic, and that I never met a piece of china that I didn't like, but I'll bet you didn't realize that I have a lid fetish, as well! Yes, I am getting injections, and undergoing an intensive series of therapy sessions. However, I can't seem to kick my addiction to cachepots, covered serving dishes, soup tureens and just about anything china with a lid on it. Here are some temptations that I just could not avoid over the years...
Green Limoges cachepot with bees. This was my mother's, so I can't really be blamed for having it.
Reproduction Chinese import porcelain. This was a gift I gave to my mother when I was a teenager.
Cabbage soup tureen. My first love of lidded things.
A rooster (chicken?), of course.
Assorted covered serving bowls with bird lids, of which this is just one. These are examples of several obsessions: china, covered dishes and birds! There's probably a joke in there about two birds with one stone, but I'll resist the temptation.
