Painterly Delphs

Buying pots on eBay is always a bit of a gamble.  Until they land on the doorstep, you never quite know what you've got.  This 8" (no. 3) Delphis plate, painted by Christine Tate in the late 1960's, was a real nice surprise.  As Delphis goes, it isn't all that colorful: some of the black lines were painted in the hope that they would turn out blue once fired.  But I think I prefer them black. The plate has a lovely, graphic painterly style,  nice texture in places, subtle colouring in parts, and it typifies what I like most about Delphis.

A long search rewarded

John Adams designed his Streamline coffee pots/hot water jugs in 3 sizes.  I've had the largest (7 1/2" tall) and smallest (5" tall) in my favourite C95 Twintone colours for quite a while, but until last week the middle sized pot (5 3/4" Tall) had eluded me.

And finally, the third pot from the auction job lot I started posting photos of last month. This bowl (shape number 219) has a pattern (CB pattern) that I've not seen before and was the main reason for my purchase of the 3 pots.

Blogging through treacle, but will speed up again soon

Here's the second, of the three pot auction lot I won, so long ago now, that I've forgotten exactly when.  I will post the third one soon though.  And the important information UH/570.
