Worth the Wait

I must have been a bit blogged down last week and didn't post any photos, but I hope this one is worth the wait.  This large Atlantis vase came from eBay about a month ago.  It's only the third piece of Atlantis ware in my collection and is at least four times the size of the others.  Shape number A92 it stands 8 1/2 inches tall and is stamped with a CC potters mark, used at Poole by Catherine Connett's between 1973 and 76.

I'm spending Saturday morning following the Cottees Poole Pottery sale online.  So while waiting for the my lots to come up, thought I could usefully use the time to blog.
This vase I found quite a while ago, it's shape number 583, LD pattern painted by Hilda Trim.

Real Love?

I do worry that this blog might give an impression that there is only room in my heart for small ceramic objects.  Of course, that isn't really true: I was touched tonight by the John Lewis penguin Real Love Xmas ad.
John Lewis must love making money, but I think they could have manipulated me so much better if only they had thought to include just one gay or lesbian couple beside the four or five (six, I think including the penguins) heterosexual couples shown in the ad.  I would have got my wallet out for that. But maybe they had thought of it, and thought that maybe gay love, isn't after all "real love"! Now, that's not very festive of you JL.
Anyway these guys say it better And sticking to what I do best - it's a little cream jug 326/GT.

More Ruth Pavely

This CA pattern jug (shape no. 377), like the salt dish in the last post, was also painted by Ruth Pavely in about 1922.

This salt pot was painted by Ruth Pavely at the start of her career at Poole in 1922.  EU pattern, shape number 299, and just over one inch tall.

Hornsea Pottery

I found these at the Elsecar Antiques fair.  They are marked on the underside Hornsea Pottery Craft Studio, Regd England, with an image of a horn, some waves and a stamped number 236. Which is the mark used from 1960-62 They're just over 5 inches tall.  I bought them mainly because they were a pair, but now I realise that I have no room for them, and if I keep them I'll risk starting another collection.  So I'm going to list them on eBay later today.
