Whilst scouring the car boot sales in search of interesting pots for the Potshot collection, I sometimes get a little distracted. I know I should be focusing on my quest for pearls of pottery perfection but occasionally I can't help taking the odd diversion.
Here's one example. I couldn't resist this set of brilliant table place mats. The colours are superb and the stylised flower-power decoration is so funky. The mats feel as if they're printed on tin and they are cork-backed. I don't know who made them but they are marked Made in England. I imagine they are probably 1960s or early 1970s.
OK, they're not pots but you must agree that for great design, great graphics and great colours we're allowed the odd diversion.
