Poole Delphis Plate Shape no.4 Painted by Jean Millership

This reversed palmate pattern appears on a lot of Delphis plates.  It strikes me as been very reminiscent of Matisse paper cut-outs, where I'm sure on occasions he would use both the cut out shape and the "negative" sheet.  Although cut-outs appear to be so popular with school teachers I might have got a bit confused.  This plate was made in second half of the 1960's.
