During the 1920's and 30's, when new decorators were employed at Poole Pottery, they began learning their craft painting these simple "Sprig" decorations, before moving on after a year or so to learning some of the elaborate patterns. This style of decoration also pre-dates the more elaborate patterns and was introduced by James Radley Young in the 1910's. These two pots I found at fairs recently. I'm not really so keen on them to be honest, I guess they're not so fashionable either, and I keep telling myself not to buy them. But then they always seem so cheep its hard to resist.
