Made in Nippon

I found this precious gem in an Op Shop on the Mornington Peninsula. There are many Op Shops there, and this particular Op Shop was in a back street in Rye just off the main drag. I use it as a milk jug although it’s original intention, I feel, was intended for Soy Sauce. The jugs greatest point of interest is it has no handle and fits in hand like an ergonomic dream and is pleasant to touch with white glossy texture and a blue matt texture. It is beautiful to hold. This jug gives me so much pleasure for that simple reason. It looks great too, with a texture and colour that is like no other I have seen.

It cost me $7, and it was $7 well spent! Expensive for an Op Shop but you are also supporting a charity by either giving or receiving goods. This particular charity supports family violence shelters.
