A fellow Poole collector gave me the idea for this page a few months ago and finally I have got round to doing it.
Hopefully there will be lots more to post on there in future.

Despite some dramatic changes in style, I think, there is an remarkable consistency to the Poole colour palette from one decade to the next. The vase above landed on my door step within day or so the Delphis vase in the previous post, and though they were painted four decades apart, the blue green colour and dashes of purple, for me, are clear evidence of their kinship.
This is a fair sized vase (8 1/2 inches tall) made from grey stoneware and painted in HR pattern it dates from about 1921 and has an unidentified decorators mark.

This style of unglazed pottery was developed by James Radley Young, through the war years, from 1914. It is signed on the base Carter Co Poole (mark used from 1908 until 1921), together with an inscribed No.9 and a painters mark M-C.

After a good two weeks of excess, drinking is now the last thing on my mind, but I worry that this Purbeck Pottery jug and beaker set could lead me astray. I don't know much about it but if might date from the 1970's. And a happy New Year.
