Pick 'n' Mix

Nearly all of the "Traditional" Poole Pottery in my collection is made from the red clay that was in use at Poole from the mid-1920's up until 1934.  The pots from this period have a particular feel that is hard to describe.  There's a softness to the decoration, that seems to be bonded deeper into the body of the vase.  So this vase is just a couple of years too late for me, but I wanted it for it's unusual, strangely random pattern.  It is shape number 112, GD pattern painted by Hilda Trim between 1934 and 1937.
