Welcome to this listing of a small China Vase named Dennis...

Now where do I start? Well I first found Dennis in a small 'Vase Orphanage' (charity shop) in Radstock. Although not totally unsettled in his surroundings, having many other china friends around him, I could sense Dennis wished for a better life. So he came with me and our friendship grew...

I'm not sure how old Dennis is, or where he even grew up. I named him Dennis, although judging by his tattoos I would say he looks more Chinese in Origin, so maybe I should have named him something more Chinese, like Bruce or Lee? His age is unknown, but I would say judging by his character he would probably be a Capricorn, due to his reserved nature and him being an introvert. He can also be rather Selfish. I'm not sure if it's me being a Leo and Dennis a Capricorn, but we have had our disagreements and have recently fallen out of friendship together...hence the sale.

Judging by his condition I would say he has suffered no domestic violence with his past owners, and seems to be in good shape, although since being in my home has become very lethargic, choosing to sit in one spot for long periods of time. That's not to say that Dennis doesn't enjoy the outdoors, as this is where he really seems to shine and bring out his colourful nature. He loves walks on the beach and long strolls through woodland...again though this is another area where we had a fall out, as it seemed that I always had to carry him. So any future home should respect the fact that he does require supported living needs, and needs all his personal care done for him too. He is generally clean and always hygienic though.

As the photos show Dennis is always willing to take on any role, and for potential buyers I have listed a series of jobs that Dennis would obligingly be willing to partake in:
He could be used as a spittoon, decorative vase for storing nettles or thistles (see pic), as another picture shows - if you don't have a warning triangle in your car, he cold be used as such, as no motorist would drive over china, and his peacock designs on the side would easily alert motorists to your presence. Others could be; a small floatation device, storage for rice krispies (see pic) or other cereals, a small urn (maybe for hamster or guinea pig ashes), a hipflask if a cork is used, or any drinking vessel - and you would be sure to be the envy of anyone else in a pub with this beauty, peanut holder, wheel chock for a car (see pic), toothbrush holder, bed pan, desk tidy, or a musical instrument if you blow across the top (be sure to check out local bands in the paper that require a special 'blower' musician).

Dennis generally keeps to himself, and just needs to go to a loving family that can take care of him, as my adoption of him just didn't seem to work out in the end. I think it would do us both good for some time apart, especially as we're now not even talking to each other. I don't think it's Dennis, It's me really...I just want him to be happy and find someone who truly loves him.

Any questions please feel free to ask.
