Trading-up ever so slightly

This 9cm vase is shape number 361 and is JV pattern painted by Ruth Gough, I would say, in 1934.  It's almost identical to a vase I already have that can be seen here, though the shape (no. 136) is very slightly more narrow, and crucially this new vase is a whole year earlier in date.  Which, for me anyway, makes if a whole lot nicer as it's made out of the red earthenware clay Poole stopped using in 1934.
