When I spotted this Spaniel cookie jar at Anthropologie last weekend, I knew right away that it was going on my Christmas list. Clearly the styling of this cookie jar was inspired by the Staffordshire dog figurines of the 19th century, which were often displayed on mantelpieces in pairs. Nowadays, the real deal (lots of replicas on the market – beware!) is hard to come across and fairly expensive. So I'm happy to settle for this stoneware version and have it sit in a prime spot on my countertop! Spaniel Cookie Jar, $128 US, Anthropologie The back view.
