There are some spectacular Poole pots on eBay at the moment. This one came from there last week. It has a blue dolphin stamp which dates it to 1966 or 67 I think. It's painted by Shirley Campbell, or possibly Geraldine O'Meara, as they used the same ||| mark. And it couldn't have come out of the kiln any better. The photo doesnt do it justice, the colour, texture, everything about it, is perfect, and it's the best plate in my collection, so far.
