A Little Jaded?

I went to the antiques fair at Keddlestone Hall near Derby yesterday.  It's smaller than the fairs at Newark and Lincoln, but the park of this grand country house makes a very nice venue.  I came away empty handed, as I often seem to do from fairs these days, but had more luck last week at the Woolley and Wallis auction where I won this green lustre glaze Cater & Co vase.   It was made at Poole Pottery sometime between 1908 and 1918, its pretty rare, in perfect condition and the glaze has a gorgeous petrol on water iridescence. There is a red vase of the same shape in the Haward and Atterbury book "Poole Pottery"
