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.

Nice catch. A Hornsea butterfy wall plaque from 1972

Look what I was lucky enough to net this week. A butterfly.

I managed to find this colourful specimen lurking in a local charity shop. It's a ceramic wall plaque but is sometimes referred to as a teapot stand. The butterfly is moulded in relief and the plaque has a glossy glaze.

The plaque is by Hornsea and dates from the 1970s. It was over a year ago now when I did a blog-post on a fish version of the same plaque. Remember this: fish wall plaque

I do like the butterfly plaque and am pleased to have it in the Potshots collection but, between you and me, I think I prefer the fish.
