I have collected Poole Pottery for over 30 years now. It is an extensive collection of over 3000 pieces. The focus of the collection is plain Poole. The variety of colours, finishes, shapes and sizes seems to be infinite. My collection covers the period from the 1930s through to the sixties. The vases produced over this period are a particular interest of mine. Many pieces from my collection are featured in a recent publication called 'Poole Twintone and Tableware' by Anne Wilkinson.
