A handmade studio pottery art plate which I believe is by Well House Pottery, Paignton, Devon from the 1970s or so. Beautifully hand painted with a unique stylised fish design in hues of blue within black outlines. Speckled technique, with a smooth glossy finish. Probably more suited as an ornamental collectable plate - perfect for display. It has a brown/black back with no potters marks. Red clay base.
20.5cm wide - large side plate or small dinner plate size. Very good condition with no chips or crazing. 
Price includes P&P to the UK.
The Wellhouse Pottery, Well Street, Paignton Devon, 1964-1982.
This pottery at Paignton was started by designers Toni and Raymond Smith (Toni Raymond) in 1964 following the purchase of stock and equipment from Priddoe’s Studio Pottery Paignton. The Wellhouse artist/manager was Peter Greenham and he later bought the pottery after the Toni Raymond business acquisition of the Babbacombe Pottery in 1967 and subsequent moved there.
The Wellhouse Pottery, Old Pound Street, Brixham 1982-2002.
It was about 1982 that Peter Greenham moved the pottery to The Old Pound House premises of the Brixham Pottery. There they continued to make high glazed, pigment decorated domestic wares with bold brush script lettering. Cyril Wilson a very experienced Torquay potter worked there in semi-retirement and made several commemorative items in traditional Torquay terracotta clay and decorated with a coloured slip and sgraffito design.
