Do the usual shops like john lewis stock it?

LIZS Sun 13-Jan-08 11:57:51

They used to.

They do in Plymouth, so do place called Derry's which is a copoperative department store. Dont know if your area does an equivalent, or has a website. They do some great Poole pottery.

Sorry that should have said Cooperative, not copoperative!

someone got me a poole pottery lamp and think it was from john lewis

not to sound ungrateful or anything but this particular example of their stuff is not even NICE

Vacua - must be the particular item you got. Poole do some fantastic vases, in particular a great red, orange bold style. Gorgeous. Tho depends what you like right?

SIL has requested this for her bday but its not on the JL website - I will see if Derrys have a website.

Thanks

this is sort of red orange and green, it might look nice in a house which is not mine. or with a different shade or something.

here is it is derrys

PavlovtheCat Sun 13-Jan-08 12:03:52

Vacua - you wanna sell it then ?!!!!

Vacua Sun 13-Jan-08 12:04:41

aha I have found it - but my one is the traditional vase type shape, like an hourglass. but is in that theme with those colours.

Trix11 Sun 13-Jan-08 12:04:45

Why dont you sell it Vacua?

Thank you Pavlovthecat - can I search for their products on their website?

Trix11 Sun 13-Jan-08 12:05:29

Where have you found it Vacua?

Vacua Sun 13-Jan-08 12:05:45

shade is quite battered and dusty and needs to be replaced but do you really want it? would LOVE to part with it. will pretend it got broken.

Vacua Sun 13-Jan-08 12:06:43

I put a link isn't it

Trix11 Sun 13-Jan-08 12:08:23

is that the pic of what you have? Plus the other two items? I think she would like that

Vacua Sun 13-Jan-08 12:09:44

no that is just from the internet, is same colours but different shape

it would be NICE to get rid of it actually, it's quite big though

I've seen Poole pottery in store in John Lewis.

Trix11 Sun 13-Jan-08 12:12:57

According to the MIL she would like a bowl !!

PavlovtheCat Sun 13-Jan-08 12:14:05

I dont like the lamp part of it. Agree does not do the style justice! I prefer the vases/plates etc. And perhaps not enough red. You could sell it on ebay tho...

Trix - the website doesnt seem to let you search for items, how rubbish is that? You could look on Ebay for some Poole...

shoshe Sun 13-Jan-08 12:16:36

you could try here

The shop at the pottery closed in 2006 as decling sales here

am anxious to remind all that the pic is not of my house, if it was there would be 4 million unread newspapers and bills eclipsing view of lamp possibly interspersed with a few moulding cups of coffee

PavlovtheCat Sun 13-Jan-08 12:17:40

Soshe - I as just looking at that one too!
