I love this EH pattern.  It really has that Art Deco industrial/futuristic look, a little like the Chrysler Building or film posters for Metropolis.  Shape number 559, it's just under 6 inches tall and was painted by Marjorie Batt in the early 1930's.  It came to me via eBay from a fellow collector.

Tall Jam Jar

There doesn't seem to be very much daylight around at the moment for taking new photos.  This pot came from eBay a couple of months ago when the days were a little longer.  You don't see so many of these tall jam pots shape no 287, and the QO pattern is always good, this time painted by Nellie Bishton.  Nellie, or as she was later known Mrs Blackmore, had a career at Poole that spanned an amazing 49 year, from 1927 until 1976.

Chicken brick?

I remember keeping a lookout for one of these twin-tone butter boxes for quite a while before finding this one. I really loved it's Tupperware looks - not a bit like pottery really -so it's not helping at all with my current feelings of ceramic cold turkey.
It must be well over a week since I last found any Poole Pottery, but I am hoping to make up for this next weekend.  Cottess Auctioneers in Wareham have just sent me the catalogue for their latest Poole Pottery Sale on Saturday 17th November.  It's like eBay on speed.  And although the sale is too far for me to travel to, they do a great packing service.

TP or QL

I love this weird pattern and this vase shape isn't a bad match, so despite it's cracks, I snapped up the vase from eBay a couple of weeks ago.  Shape number 599, TP pattern (at least thats what it says on the bottom) painted by Marjorie Batt in the early 1930's. The same pattern as this QL pattern vase
