I bought this beautiful little hand-painted clay pot at a plant sale many years ago.
It is just 3 inches tall and decorated all the way round, but although varnished the paint is now beginning to peel and fall off. I thought I should photograph it before any more of the decoration disappears.
It looks lovely planted with just a miniature sedum or thyme, as there is so much to look at elsewhere.
I often wander who painted it – perhaps it was you?
