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.

Pick 'n' Mix
Nearly all of the "Traditional" Poole Pottery in my collection is made from the red clay that was in use at Poole from the mid-1920's up until 1934. The pots from this period have a particular feel that is hard to describe. There's a softness to the decoration, that seems to be bonded deeper into the body of the vase. So this vase is just a couple of years too late for me, but I wanted it for it's unusual, strangely random pattern. It is shape number 112, GD pattern painted by Hilda Trim between 1934 and 1937.
