Being busy collecting doesn't leave very much time to update the Rob's Poole Pottery website, so all my new finds I'll post on this blog, and for the main site follow the links on the right.

Guildford Cathedral Pin Dish
There's a photo of a trapezium shaped dish with the same image of Guildford Cathedral in the Hayward and Atterbury "Poole Pottery" book. So I've been hunting for one of these for a long time, and maybe there are fewer around than you'd expect, though I don't think rarity makes everything particularly valuable. It dates from somewhere between 1959 and 67. Anyway, I love the square shape,, I like the connection of pottery and architecture and the decoration has a nice feel to it, screen printed and hand coloured. I've got a very similar dish of Coventry Cathedreal on my website.
