More Poole Pottery for sale on eBay; and some Charles Collard Honiton

Charles Collard Honiton c1930.

Charles Collard Honiton Jug; c1930.

Another tranche of Poole Pottery is now for sale on eBay. As I’ve sorted through boxes I’ve pulled out a few memories. This rather pretty jug caught my eye. I bought it for £5 in 1982 in Brighton. It’s the first bit piece of Honiton I’d bought. I have never worked out whether Poole or Honiton were stealing the other’s ideas. Charles Collard has access to roughly similar clays and he opted for a very naive style. His production values never really approached Poole Pottery’s but he did have an edge when it came down to a down home potting style. The wares are seldom without blemish. And that £5? I probably wouldn’t get £10 today. I still loves it though.
