Cup and saucer. Title "The Wolf & The Lamb." "When You Have Made Up Your Mind To Quarrel/It Is Easy To Find An Excuse" around the rim of the saucer. Similar hand-painted illustrations of lamb, river, and wolf on each. Gold trim around the handle and the edges of both cup and saucer. Evergreens (?), cones (?), and silver swirl patterns on the non-picture sides of both pieces. Aesop's Fables Series. Royal Winton, Grimwades. Made in England. $22 from Tamy Treso, Redvers, Saskatchewan, through Ebay, Feb., '00.
As with the two bowls, the strength here of Royal Winton lies in its lovely colors. The pastels in the river make it almost psychedelic! Both pieces have a golden "A" as an additional mark on the bottom.
