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.

Small but Mighty
I won this vase at a recent Auction at Fryer and Browns in Surrey, thanks to an online bid. It's a good pot, YW pattern, shape 512, painted by Ruth Pavely in the early 1930's. The only disappointment when it arrived was that at 7 inches tall it's not quite as big as I'd imagined. I think with pots a few inches does make a lot of difference in terms of scale and impact.But there's a lot crammed in to this pot for its size and i do like this pattern, especially with the top border.
