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.

A Little Jaded?
I went to the antiques fair at Keddlestone Hall near Derby yesterday. It's smaller than the fairs at Newark and Lincoln, but the park of this grand country house makes a very nice venue. I came away empty handed, as I often seem to do from fairs these days, but had more luck last week at the Woolley and Wallis auction where I won this green lustre glaze Cater & Co vase. It was made at Poole Pottery sometime between 1908 and 1918, its pretty rare, in perfect condition and the glaze has a gorgeous petrol on water iridescence. There is a red vase of the same shape in the Haward and Atterbury book "Poole Pottery"
