Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Poole Delphis dish by Ros Sommerfelt.

Two colourful dishes by Poole Pottery. From the Delphis range, these small, seven-sided dishes have vibrant abstract patterns and were made in the early 1970s. Both are signed by the artist. The top dish is by Ros Sommerfelt, her signature is the one shown on the left of the two base pictures. I'm not sure who the artist was on the second dish.

Nice shapes, strong colours and expressive decoration – three factors that ensured these little dishes made their way into the Potshots collection.

If you're lucky, you can still pick up smaller items of Delphis like this at a reasonable price. And, to me, it's worth the small investment in order to be able to display these miniature works of art.

If you want to compare these Delphis items with the later Aegean range, there are some examples here: Poole Aegean range and here: more Aegean
