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 vase was in the same lot as the honey pot posted a couple of weeks ago. It's painted in Sweet Pea (TY) patter by Hilda Trimm and can be dated by it's pink base to somewhere between 1934 and 37. A lot of the sweet pea pattern pots I've seen come from this period. The two simlar shaped vases in this pattern I already own are both made from red clay and date to a year or so earlier. http://www.robspoolepottery.co.uk/traditional_poole_sweet_pea_patterns.htm#122 TY In terms of size this vase fits nicely in the middle of them.
