Guildford Cathedral Pin Dish

There's a photo of a trapezium shaped dish with the same image of Guildford Cathedral in the Hayward and Atterbury "Poole Pottery" book. So I've been hunting for one of these for a long time, and maybe there are fewer around than you'd expect, though I don't think rarity makes everything particularly valuable.  It dates from somewhere between 1959 and 67.  Anyway, I love the square shape,, I like the connection of pottery and architecture and the decoration has a nice feel to it, screen printed and hand coloured. I've got a very similar dish of Coventry Cathedreal on my website.
