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.

The increased media focus this week, on the Scotland's independence vote, has prompted me again to make an inappropriate mix of pot and politics. I think more than anything, with the opinion polls narrowing, it's the sense of the British state mustering all of it's resources to defend the union, that makes me want to (quite ineffectually) react against it. I'm not Scottish, and I've only been to Scotland once. I don't have a romantic view of Scotland, and I've never seen "Braveheart", but if the Scots vote yes, I think moving north of the boarder would be a very attractive option.
I'll be taking my pots with me of course, including this sweet EQ pattern egg cup Dorothy James in the early 1930's.
