Robert Jefferson Stroage Jars

A few years ago I was set on the goal of assembling a complete set of the Green Diamond Storage Jars that Robert Jefferson designed at Poole Pottery in 1963.   I knew there were just six small jars and 4 larger ones, and it didn't turn out to be such a tall order.  After a couple of months of looking on eBay I was able to proudly display the result on my website.  My contentment was short lived however, as a few months later a 7th jar "Bay" appeared in a matt blue glaze.  So the collecting never quite ends, and now here's "Curry", complete with authentic smelly cork stopper. One day, they will all be mine!
