I cannot identify this little vase. Can someone please help me? It has only POOLE on the base, no dolphin, Patricia Wells mark and also has 15T or 157 on the base (maybe the size?). Its 9.5cm high, 5 cm across the top, 3.5cm across the base. I bought 'the book' :-) POOLE POTTERY but it's not in there. Patricia Wells was between 1959 - 1973 but this looks quite modern for that era. This is my first time posting and am really not sure if my photos uploaded or not. I hope so. Thank you.

That's a living glaze vase from the 1990's

I think the design is Odyssey by Alan Clarke

Thanks all. What does the 157 mean on the base?

some kind of note for the pottery staff to read, the vase was possible not meant for retail

Be aware that paintress's marks were often 're-used' so in this case the mark is similar to Patricia Wells but Oddysey pattern was around from 1999 to about 2006/8 ish so it will be the mark for Lorna Whitmarsh. You are correct in thinking that it is more modern than early 70's.
The Poole book has about 4 editions so the earliest 2 - 1995 and 1998, I think - won't have later paintress marks in but it is in the 3rd edition p.234.

It is not uncommon for ebay sellers to be adamant something is earlier than it actually is because they have gone by the first paintress mark they see rather than looking at the item itself.

I bought it for £18 at a boot sale and the seller didn't know anything about it at all. I really like it so wasn't focused on how much it was worth, just that it's so small and perfectly formed. I have to admit that the Poole collecting bug has grabbed me which is why I want to learn more about it.

Thank you to all for your information. It's quite clear I have a lot to learn!

PS - the book I bought definitely won't include 1999 - 2008. It's a first edition ISBN 0 903685 41 8

You see the small, living glaze vases for 'mad money' here and there but I wouldn't want to pay any more than your 18 for the smallest size pieces.
Later editions of the Poole book just have a chapter or two added at the end to cover the latest designs and patterns, plus a few corrections.
