A lot of the Poole shapes come in 3 or 4 graduated sizes and getting the same shape in different sizes (ideally with the same or a related pattern) is a nice, if a little nerdish, way to build a collection. I have a cream jug with the same overall proportions shape number 326 and there could be one mid-sized between that and this LT jug.

The struggle to find space has featured large for me this week. I've had a few days off work, and have spent most of them decorating the spare room/pottery central and setting up some new display cabinets. I will still be at it over the bank holiday, but sadly now realise that no matter how much extra shelf space, there will never be quite enough. And probably not for this lovely bowl.
It least the pots on display are looking well curated, and I hope to share photos on here once done.

Last week while clearing some shelves of pottery to make way for a new display case (that will never be big enough), I felt something new: It was oppression. Standing in the spare room surrounded by Pottery on all four sides (five, if counting the boxed under the spare bed) that perhaps isn't surprising. Maybe guests stopping over, although they have never said, might have felt the same in the past (perhaps thats why they never return?).
Anyway, the result is ten pots listed on eBay last week, including the cat-like face Delphis bowl above (shape number 57, painted by Anne Godfrey in the last 1960's).
