This decorator plate is made of stoneware and is from the Poole Wildlife Collection 1982-84. Initialed BLA on the front of the plate, it is designed by Barbara Lindley Adams for the series entitled New Forest animals, birds, mice, cats, and dogs. Marked on the base "POOLE ENGLAND" Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. 5" diameter. Wonderful detail as a shiny glaze dot on the eye draws your attention to the effective bird, possibly a wren, perched on a branch with an insect crawling out from the circling ivy leaves.
