Aegean Oakleaf

I like Aegean plates best with a dark black/brown and good contrast colourful (not brown) pattern.  Which means I don't find very many Aegean pots to collect.  Anyway Poole did quite a few of these leaf patterns which I think were made using a sgaffito technique, scratching off the dark glaze to reveal the yellow underneath.  This one was decorated by Diana Davis and came to me via the Lincoln Antiques Fair.
