Product description

Poole Pottery vintage jam pot (without lid) - "PC" traditional floral pattern
 
An original vintage Poole Pottery sugar bowl or jam pot (without lid), in off-white satin glaze, handpainted in the colourful traditional "PC" floral pattern. The base bears an impressed "POOLE / ENGLAND" rectangular stamp, a handpainted decorator's mark (which appears to be that of Gladys Hallett, who worked for Poole between 1935 and 1958), and an indistinct incised number (perhaps "288"). This piece most probably dates from the late 1930s: the white base indicates that it was produced no earlier than 1937, whilst the incised pattern number suggests a date of pre-1946 (and it is unlikely to date from the WW2 period, when the factory switched production to plain Utility wares).
 
This example has a manufacturing defect in the form of a small unglazed patch to the exterior just below the rim, in addition to crazing to most of the surface, characteristic inconsistencies in the glaze and decoration, slight surface wear, and marking to the unglazed foot. Owing to its condition, this item is offered for sale as a collectable or display piece only, and not for food use; however, it would still make a charming decorative accessory - or receptacle for non-food items - for a vintage-inspired or cottage-style interior.
