Gravy Boat - Groovy Bird

Terence Conran's Albion range for Royal Doulton is beautifully simple and plain. Most pieces in the collection have straight edges, but this gravy boat has gone all swoopy.

There's a distinct but subtle bird form hiding beneath that essentially practical handle and spout, don't you think? Do zoot over to PointClickHome and read Anne E Collins' post about this shape. I'm so on her side (even though I've been a culprit in the birds trend myself!).
