B for Bedroom

I love the simplicity of this CV pattern candlestick.  It was thrown from a grey stoneware in 1921 or '22 and has a painters mark CT or GT and pattern number is B268.  I learned only recently that the letter prefix to these early pattern numbers are thought to refer to the ultimate destination of the pottery, A for Architectural, D for decorative, T for tableware and B for bedroom.

    1. Hi BT, The info was hidden away at the back of the Haward and Atterbury Poole Pottery book. I'd not taken notice of it previously, but had seen a few vases with the D before the shape number and wondered myself what it meant.
