Strawberries and cream...

A bit late for Wimbledon, but still... Imagine stuffing your face with strawberries and extra-thick cream out of this particular, nicely inappropriate, bowl. It's one of four bought by my brother and my sister-in-law as gifts for my lovely friend Duncan and me, when we visited them in Paris sometime in the late 1970s, early 1980s. Not quite antique, but definitely vintage.The other one that I still have reads, la plus caline - which might have been more appropriate! It is 88 degrees (in old money) in the shade here, according to my garden thermometer. Scorchio!
