Irene Kerton Charger

After many years of collecting, this is only the second shape no 5 (14") Delphis plate I own.  I guess that's because there are not so many about and when they appear they tend to be snapped up quickly for pretty high prices.  Painted by Irene Kerton in 1968 or 69.

Here's a very sunny looking plate I won on eBay a few weeks ago.  Some of the early Poole patterns have lovely naive patterns.  This one manages to remind me of buttercups, sunrise and circus clowns all at the same time.  Coded QN it was painted by Ethel Barrett in the early 1920's.

Veteran Car Rally, Poole 1961

Definitely a day for taking the hood down.  I think I can let this plate speak for itself and get back outside to the sun while it lasts.

1966 Delphis

Painted by Margaret Anderson in 1966, this 8 inch Delphis plate has the blue Poole dolphin mark (found on other plates from the same year) that was the result of the black stamp interacting with magnolia glaze used on plates underside. A white glaze was used on the bottom of these pots from 1967 onward, so later plates have a truer black mark.

I've finally made a start on a long overdue update of some of the pages on the main website, adding new photos, the first of which is at Colour Reactive Glazes and hopefully there will be more to follow.
