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.

More Poole Scenes
This photo was sent to me at the weekend by Nick, a fellow collector. The back of the plate reads, "Poole Quay is from the Poole Scenes Collection. Taken from an original print by Poole based artist, John Liddell" and underneath "Poole quay has been renowned for it's potteries from as early as the iron age. Also legendary for smuggling activities in the 18th Century with the Customs House at the centre of a famous raid in 1747. Poole Harbour is reported to be the second largest natural harbour in the world, and has seen many ships, from pirate to cargo, pass through its waters."
