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.

Poole Pottery Cheese Box 978/OG
Poole made a whole range of different lidded and domed pots. Shape number 978 here is described in the Hayward and Atterbury book as a cheese box. The lid is only 5 inches in diameter, and looks like it would hold little more than a "baby-bel", but maybe a small Camembert could be squeezed in. The pattern is OG and it was painted by Hilda Hampton in the early 1930's and was sold to me at the Bakewell Antiques Fair this summer.
