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.

This twin handled vase has real charm. It's an early one, covered in the grey slip used between 1922 and '24, and it seems to carry the orbital marks from the potters fingers/knuckles very proudly. The pattern (coded PN on the underside) was painted by Gertie warren who also began her career at Poole in 1922. It suits this shape of vase really well and has great luminosity against the dull grey ground.
