Poole Delphis Jardiniere Christine Tate

Everything may look the same size on here, but this is a giant pot. Shape number 80 its 20.5cm tall and 21.5cm wide.  Painted by Christine Tate who worked at Poole between 1964 and 1970, this shape was in production only from 1966 to 1968.  I've got a real soft spot for the earlier yellow Delphis pots and on this one I really like the painterly style and the little flashes of aqua-blue.
This was on eBay last week from another collector based in Yorkshire (there seem to be quite a few) so I was able to drive over to pick it up and avoid the anxiety of having it posted.
