Irises in a coffee pot

Our friends, Kim and Chris, gave us a lovely bunch of irises yesterday which are just beginning to bloom. I was already using my favourite Dorothy Hafner vase  for a few of our anniversary stems that had dried, so needed to look around for a substitute. 

I enjoy seeing flowers in unexpected containers and so chose this coffee pot for the irises. It's Royal Worcester and is just plain white. The design name and age are unknown. Mum gave it to me a few years ago when I moved in with Dave and I think it might originally have belonged to my great aunt, Ada. It has a little flattened dome lid and I love its simplicity and elegant lines.
