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 is my most exciting find from Newark last week. Painted by Hilda Trim in the early 1930's this BY pattern is one of my favourites. The pattern always reminds me a a Kandinsky painting - there's something quite musical about it. But then there are also some ancient Egyptian references too - the blue and white striped scepter and the lotus flower. I've got a couple of smaller pots where this pattern is much more condensed, but on this 7 inch tall jug (shape no. 303) the design works equally well and loses none if it vibrancy.
