Poole Pottery Geometric Pattern Art Deco Jug 324 EO

I seem to be getting quite a collection of these.  This ones a tidily 7cm tall. and Painted I think by Margaret Holder though the signature is a little hard to read.  It's from the late 1920s/early '30s

Geometric Pattern Vase RD 563

These little Poole Pottery geometric patterned pots are particularly collectable.  The small ones are the best. This one is just 8.5cm tall and as such doesn't look to have too large areas of blank white.  There's more of these on my website here.

Traditional Poole Candlestick 643/JF

I got this one at Newark Antiques Fair last autumn.  It's quite early I think.  The "delft" glaze on traditional Poole was developed throughout the 1920's and there were several stages in its evolution.  This glaze looks like one of those stages.  The pattern with it's slightly blobby spots looks early too, as does the overall shape which is a bit more rustic than the usual Poole candlesticks.  It has a factory mark that was used from 1922 and was painted by Ethel Barrett who worked at the pottery from 1922 to 1927.

Poole Delphis Pin Dish No. 49 Angela Wybugh

This one has a bit of a firing flaw on the rim where the coloured glaze has overrun and left a rough bubbly edge, but that meant that it came to me at a knock down price this week.

Traditional Poole Trumpet Shape Vase 199/YW

This one came from eBay last week. A really nice seller and a good vase. It was painted by Doris Marshall who worked at Poole between 1926 and '36. Its a pattern with good art deco shapes and curves that really does grow on you .

Yellow Art Deco Vase YE/113

Besides the multicoloured patterns on Traditional Poole, less common colour combinations were also used. The beige and blue plate posted last month was one example, but this yellow and black palate is my favourite (for today!).

The concentric, overlapping and dissected circle motif used in this and other Truda Carter Patterns always reminds me of the paintings by Sonya and Robert Delaunay of the same period. I've also heard them described as abstract bumble bees, which in their yellow and black form is very apt. The vase was painted by Clarice Heath between 1934 and 37.

3 Delphis Planters

Finding space to display pottery is always tricky, especially when your loved ones don't share your passion! Planters are easy enough though, if you use them as intended - you do have to protect the inside with plastic tubs though.

Contemporary Pattern Dishes

The Contemporary ROL pattern cucumber shape dish above sold on my website this week to a a collector of Poole Freeform. It was quickly followed by the two trays below which I hadn't even got on the site! The long one is Slits pattern (UIT Simple) Painted by I think Heather Bailey (1957-59) and the egg shape one is Scroll pattern (HZU Elaborate) Painted by Gladys Hallett (1954-58).

There's were quite a few different patterns and shapes of dishes made during the 1950's at Poole and I had thought about making a collection of these but there's only so much you can collect, so sadly I had to part with these, but they're going to a good home.

Traditional Poole

This case once contained a set of scales, but with a glass shelf fitted its much more useful for displaying some of my more jazzy Traditional Poole.

Poole Delphis Collection

As promised evidence of a still bit-over-full display cabinet. I quite like the mix of the 1960's pottery with the gently Art Deco cabinet

Traditional Poole Cake Plate TJ/712

Gorgeous Pottery cake plate from ebay this week. It's surprizingly small, at just 6 inches across, so would only be for the finest cakes, and not my usual whopping great doughnuts.

It's made from red clay, so dates, sometime before 1934, but I'm still mulling over the painters mark. The carrying handle is metal covered in coloured basketwork.

TJ is one of my favourite patterns. To cover a small flat surface in the round the pattern has been adapted from the version more commonly painted on vases. A vase in the same pattern is on my website here
