Beside the factory stamp, the other marks to look out for are the pattern code, usually two letters (but sometimes one or three); the shape number, either inscribed, impressed or printed; and the decorators mark, sometimes initials but just as often a symbol.
For example, the three pots below can be identified from their bases as WK pattern, shape number is unclear but its 288, painted by # (Winifred Rose), V pattern, shape 354, with decorator Poole Pottery can be dated by looking both at the factory mark at the base, as this changed over time, as well as looking at the monogram used by the individual decorator, for whom there are records of when they worked at the factory.
There's a gallery for Guy Sydenham and finally a Miscellaneous gallery for everything else Poole that I've collected.
And, just so you don't feel left out, there's a gallery for Your Pots too, which also includes my reviews of collections on public display in UK museums, in Poole, Abweystwyth and the V&A in London.
If ever visiting Poole put The Plantation at the top of your list for a first class relaxing culinary experience.
Poole Pottery is generally well marked and I've only ever seen one pot which looked like Poole but didn't carry a factory mark on the base (although this can be obscured sometimes, particularly with Aegean ware which sometimes has dark glazed bases).
We have been several times and not only do we love it but it’s a great place to meet up with family and friends for a coffee and a stroll. The location in an up-market residential area was surprisingly quiet and the accommodation was both spacious and very comfortable.
Booked a meal in the restaurant & a room for the night for my boyfriend's birthday after reading all the positive reviews on trip advisor. The hotel is small but very well thought out, very clean & the staff are very welcoming. The overall service at reception, bar and dining room was first class and the food at both dinner and breakfast was outstanding and excellent value for money. Bedroom was clean and spacious, room was very modern and well looked after.
As mentioned above Poole invariably carries at least a factory mark and this will always be the surest way to identify a pot.
There are galleries for each of these periods, with three for Delphis ware (Delphis Plates, Delphis Vases and Bowls and 49'er Gallery) and four for Art Deco Poole (Traditional Gallery 1, Gallery 1.5, Gallery 2 and Gallery 3).
There are also galleries for Tableware, with sections for Twintone and other tableware designs by Robert Jefferson.
There are bound to be similarities in looks with other factories though if only because they were all following/creating the fashion and look of the times.
Honiton comes from a similar part of the world to Poole, well Devon at least, and has a similar look.
