can anyone tell me if they know of a potter by the name Stone (possibly initial B) who has worked for the Poole factory? i've been looking at a figure which is has an incised mark of that name and Poole.  Can't find anything, either for Poole Pottery, CSA, or Carters.

Janet Stone wasn't a potter but she worked at Poole in 1973 on the stoneware animal production

no, was a creamy white coloured glaze. doesn't matter now though because my Other Half wouldn't buy it for me. It was the last lot in a very large auction sale at Chichester today, and he wouldn't wait to the end for me. Rolling Eyes

This will say B'Stone, short for Broadstone which is an area of Poole. It is not Poole Pottery although often (mis)-sold as such. Wall plaques come up fairly regularly though I've not seen this figure before.

There was a Broadstone Pottery between 1928 - 1934 that is mainly known for the Joyous range but I don't think it has ever been proven that this is from the same pottery. Seems right for that time though.

thanks for that info Gareth. Not being a Poole pottery collector myself, i had thought it was by Poole, so glad that you have cleared that up for me. And, i guess, glad that my partner didn't buy it for me, as the reserve of £50 may have been it's full value?

Yes, it looks a nice enough piece in it's own right but most of the value for these pieces seem to come from the Poole Pottery mis-attribution!

Having said I hadn't seen this figure before the only other piece I can find in a quick Google is this figure, without the base. £30 as part of a job lot.
