Looks to me like some form of saucer.

What size it is?

Excellent information on the pooleimages link - many thanks for posting it Dan.

Believe it or not I was about to ask if there was any information available about Mr. S.

Just uploading a couple of pics for (Poole Pottery) Sue as she still hasn't sussed out how to upload them yet. I did give her an extended instruction course on how to do it but no luck as yet. Hopefully she will have more success in the coming days.

I will upload the images for her and I'm sure she will give any extra information on the pieces where necessary.

The first pic is a rather splendid Guy Sydenham octopus. The rest I will put in the Poole Pottery thread.
