Another Matching Pair

Two fairly boring screen printed images on oblong pin dishes. Thomas Becket former Arch Bishop cum saint and the Cathedral in which he was murdered/canonised at Canterbury.

The joys of collecting and making things match, even when they weren't intended to. The Becket dish was produced in 1970 (800 years after he died), the Cathedral dish from about the same time.  I have a similar illustrated plate showing Lincoln Cathedral and there may be other churches done in this style out there but I suspect they only did one saint.  I'm not sure how many sold but I image they churned them out.
