Size matters

Titter ye not, this shape number 85 vase is 18 inches tall, and I'm sure would have taken special skills in throwing.  It's the biggest Delphis vase Poole made and very collectable for that. It's also the first 85 shape in my collection, because I've always previously been out bid on them. It dates from the early 1970's and I think painted by Carole Holden, though she's listed as working on the Aegean range at this time.

  1. This is what I always think of as Poole (your blog has obviously educated me otherwise) but I still have a soft spot for a bit of lurid 1970s orange! xxx

    1. It was that funky '70's style that first got me on to Poole too.

  2. Hi Rob,
    Carol Holden was in the Delhis Studio in the early 70s then moved to the Aegean.
