Picked up these little beauties for the grand total of a pound coin.

Nice!  Donald Beckley was a protege of Jo Lester on the Isle of Wight.

They did a great deal of these small pin dishes for the tourist trade of the 50's 60's and early 70's. The decoration is nearly always superb, no matter who was making them. They are a lovely collecting area, but have never really caught on much with collectors. Hence they have always been quite cheap. Used to see a lot of these Isle of Wight pieces in the Boot sales and charity shops on the South Coast.
