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.

This pot was sold at the Warren and Wignall auction on 8th February 2017. It caught my eye because I hadn't seen this glaze before, and now it's mine, it still remains something of a mystery, at least to me.
It's marked as shape number 291, has the CSA Ltd stamp (so dates from 1925 to '34) and has a painted number 1, that must refer to the glaze. It has a red body, that I think is more highly fired than the usual earthernware body and has a thick glaze. Both the body and glaze have been ground down on the base as you find on the chinese blue vases.
If anyone has any more insights I would be glad to hear from you.
