Delphis is not just for Christmas

This festive little bauble arrived from eBay a couple of weeks ago, and seems just about the most suitable pot I have for a final post before Christmas.  
Anyway, Angela Wyburgh painted this shape 49 Delphis pin dish in 1968.  She did a lot of symetrical flowery patterns, but this one has a bit more umph  about it, a little more explosive and space-age and  reminds me more of orbiting electrons than wandering stars. But, it'll do for the top of the tree and helpfully will keep shining long after the festivities are over.
