Churchill - Cat In Bowl V1
A handsome tabby cat preens himself in a bowl decorated with the elegant “Willow Pattern,” first used by the Spode factory in Staffordshire, England. David Lawrence remembers looking at the pattern on the plates as a youngster and wondering about the people featured in the designs.
On the interior are a few willow leaves labeled “English Hurdle.” When willow is cut as a long, thin switch, it can be woven into a kind of fence known as a “hurdle.” Aspirin also appears because it is made from an extract of willow bark. The signature acorn appears under the cat's tail to the left of the mouse.
