Small biscuit barrel
This is an unusual early biscuit barrel in the hard to find small size- shape number 630. It dates form the early 1930s. The cane handle is original and unusual with the green and natural woven design.
The base is coloured to look like red clay dating it around 1934 when the change from red to white clay took place. It is sprayed in a pastel green glaze.
The base has the impressed 'Poole England' mark, a hand incised 630 and stencilled 'Pastel green'.
