Bonus Bone: Albion gravy boat

Albion Sauce/Gravy Pitcher, at The Conran Shop

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Do you have your gravy boat ready? Excuse me, I mean sauce pitcher. Ooo la la! So fancy, those Brits! What they call a sauce pitcher, we call a BOAT.

Anyhoo, I love the simple, elegant lines of this boat designed by Terence Conran. The shape is a simplified, subtle bird. The spout is its beak while the handle and plumage act as tail feathers. This is a bird theme I can get behind.

Pass the gravy, darlin'!

For these reasons, I, Porcelain, declare this a Design Boner.
