Fragment Found in: a garden
Fragment Found on: c.1960 – 2021
Comments/Information/Identification: When my younger daughter was about 6 or 7 she used to pick up bits of pottery in our garden and she called it ‘Platty Blue’ and we still call it that. She is 62 now so you can tell it was a long time ago. Since then I have tended to pick up pieces when I have been digging and just chuck them on the ledge in the garden.
