Early Stoneware Lidded Pot FE T293

This one I'm not so sure about.  I got it from eBay earlier this year. At the time it was clear that the lid and base didn't have matching decoration but once it arrived I began to doubt that the lid is even made by Poole.  It's made out of a very similar yellowish grey stoneware but it's more heavily thrown even than the bowl and it looks even more rustic in appearance with the inside feeling more like its been carved and modelled rather than turned as the base of the bowl is.  The bowl was made between 1921 and 22, and the lid, if it is Poole, belongs to an even earlier and I guess long broken pot.
