Blue pool dish
This dish, pattern number 920 (hand incised) is glazed in the rarely seen Blue Pool glaze- stencilled on the base. It is different from many other glazes of the period as it has a high sheen gloss finish along with the mottling seen on other matt glazes. Poole England is impressed in the inside foot rim.
This item was purchased from the Christie's auction of the Poole museum and archive and formed part of a bulk lot (no. 74). It is another rare and unusual piece.
