Iowa spill vase

Same shape 586 as the previous post, this one is painted in LD pattern by Iris Skinner sometime between 1928 when she started working at Poole and 1934 when the pottery stopped using red clay.

There's been a run of these little pots on eBay this month and I've managed to catch quite a few of them. This one had made it all the way to Iowa.  There's a fair amount of transatlantic trade in Poole Pottery.  Some of my favourite pots have spent most of their lives in the US and Canada and there's a extra feeling of satisfaction in bringing them back to blighty.
