Two Sky Blues from Poole Pottery
There are two sky blue glazes that were made by Poole Pottery, which as you can in the photo above are completely different. The blue on the left is numbered C104 which is the Twintone glaze sky blue and dove grey. This is the one we see heaps of as it was in production after the war from 1959 - 81 and was very popular.
The sky blue on the right is C84, sky blue and magnolia. This is a pre-war colour way and it was in production from the 1930s to the 1950s (interrupted by the war). As you can see the colours, although having the same sky blue name, are not the same at all. An additional difference is that the china is very much thinner and finer in the pre war C84 set.
