Hand-painted pottery dish by Rosemary Wakelin

Rosemary Wakelin – Pottery

 

My brother sent me this photograph of a little hand-painted ceramic dish our mother made maybe 50 years ago. She and our father both made several dishes in pottery and both signed them with their common monogrammed initials RW , so I’m not entirely sure whose this is but my gut reaction is that it was my mother. It is a perfect example of hand-decorated studio pottery from the ’50s.
