day 21:: ox


Just when you are beginning to wonder whether you might  have to make a trip to the farm to make sure there is an ox - or even a cow - in the Advent calendar, one turns up on the table of the pop-up cafe at the Royal Academy when you sit down for a coffee.  I guess it's a cow really, but we don't have that many oxen around in London.  The search is now on for an ass - could be a little easier to find.

Looks like a Burgess and Leigh pattern on the ox- was it a cow creamer?

Saw some fine examples of oxen in India but it's a bit far to go. And you probably wouldn't get a flight before Christmas.

RO - What a haekeye you are. I've just checked and tried to find the pattern and can't but there was one on another table that was definitely a Burleigh cow creamer, so maybe this one is too.

I meant hawkeye! And that's a compliment.

I love Burleigh and we go to the factory at least once a year! I think this may be the pattern http://www.burleigh.co.uk/burleigh-giftware-products.php?cl=142&section_id=1383&shopby=discontinued&clicked=18
