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

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 .

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.
