Picotee banded dinner ware

Produced in the 1930s and characterised by sprayed bands of colour, Picotee ware is hard to find.  This is an unusual addition to my collection.  The soup bowls, stands and covers are unique to this range so the shape may have been bought in.

The bands were sprayed on to the magnolia base and represented the first use of an aerobrush technique.  The pieces bear the impressed Poole England mark.
