We have had hens at our place for over eighteen months and in that time have received a bounty of over 1800 eggs - not bad for three hens.
Originally we had four hens but just before Christmas one of them, Miss Penny, went to the big hen house in the sky.
The three that are left have continued to be faithful egg layers and we have been enjoying the fruit of their labours.
It has taken a while, but last week we found this one in an op shop for NZ$3.00.
From the markings on the side and bottom I thought it would be nice to find a little more out about the bowl.
The inscription on the side, Le Petite DeJeuner, appears to translate as small kitchen bowl.
I looked up the inscription on the base of the place and Le Comptoir De Famille France have a comprehensive range of household wares. A similar bowl to the one I bought sells for Euro 13.90 which equates to approximately NZ$22.00, so I suddenly felt quite pleased with my little NZ$3.00 purchase.
