How would the kids react if you poured syrup on their pancakes from that thing?  I'm not sure what I'd do with it but I sorta like it.

I did see some Picasso in there. Picasso would have had to have been on acid.

I think it's great. And Robert Brown was quite a guy.

His work is widely collected.

There's a fair amount of interest  in face jugs made by slave potters in the USA before the Civil War like the one posted below.  Many of these pots can be very well done are highly collectable.
