pottery made of swirled clay slips of different colours-
at a pottery set up by Henry Gee in Somerset, UK in 1959, these beads were made which bear lettering on the back: "Protean Dunster G" -mainly table crockery was produced.
i've had these collar necklaces for very many years but only recently found a bit of information about the designer.
the convex/flat backed discs each has 4 holes and works with an interesting threading arrangement - one of the necklaces shows the back but its hard to see the lettering...
has anyone else got examples?
