Sprig Patterns

During the 1920's and 30's, when new decorators were employed at Poole Pottery, they began learning their craft painting these simple "Sprig" decorations, before moving on after a year or so to learning some of the elaborate patterns.  This style of decoration also pre-dates the more elaborate patterns and was introduced by James Radley Young in the 1910's.   These two pots I found at fairs recently.  I'm not really so keen on them to be honest, I guess they're not so fashionable either, and I keep telling myself not to buy them.  But then they always seem so cheep its hard to resist.
