Merry Christmas

 1966 Delphis plate painted by Shirley Campbell.  The third post in one week, must mean I'm on holiday.   Happy Holidays to everyone.

This one came with the old jam staining and a glued chip on the lid close to the spoon hole. Occupational hazards for a jam pot really, and I dont mind this time as the pattern is so good and rare.

I found some M pattern egg cups a couple of months ago.  They were the first examples of this pattern I'd seen after a few years of collecting.  Then this month tow more examples appear on eBay.  The first this vase, shape 341, and in the same week a jam pot (see next post).  Either I'm very lucky or else the pattern is less rare than I thought.  
The observant collector may also have noticed a) the yellow circle missing from pattern at the centre of the photo, and b) how there are similarities with the more common FK of "oak leaf" pattern shown here .

Plate or Pot Stand

When I saw this plate on eBay I thought it might have been the base for a cheese dish, and was even more convinced once it arrived, because it's so flat in profile.  But having just looked through the Hayward and Atterbury Poole Pottery book, there's a similar, shape number 282, listed simply as a plate, so after all I think this is a complete thing, with no missing parts.  The pattern is TK painted by Gertie Warren, between 1925 and 1927.

Sweet Pea

This Sweet Pea pattern vase was painted by Dorothy James in 1935. It's marked VY, but looks just the same as others I have are marked TY and XP. Shape no. 433, about 7 inches tall so big enough to fit in the fancy border around the top.
