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.

It looked a long way off, for a long time, but I've just been given my 1000th eBay feedback and earned a red star for it. The next milestone is a safe distance away now at 5000 and if ever I get there someone really should pull the plug.
The vase above came from eBay a couple of weeks ago. It was thrown in a gray semi-stoneware and dates to 1921-22. It's shape number D333, CG pattern and has an unknown painters mark which looks like an overlapping M C. Circles are quite unusual for Poole patterns and I suspect they are especially difficult to paint well.
