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.

Age of Jugs
Do jugs want to be used? While vases seem happy just to exist and look pretty, don't jugs have an obvious functionality that demands to be tipped and poured. It's such a shame that this once essential kitchen accessory has become redundant.
Until this jug appeared on eBay a couple of weeks ago I'd not seen this barbed wire (XW) pattern before, so I was really pleased to win it. Shape number 484, it probably holds a couple of pints, and stands 20 cm tall.
