50s Poole tea service

Poole 'peach bloom' tea cupsPoole Peach Bloom tea cups,
made in England 1953

Poole is well known for its ‘Twintone’ pottery– their expression – a simple, stylish contrast of two colours.They also seem to have coined the term ‘colourway’. These beautiful teacups are in the colourway ‘Peach Bloom and Seagull’ [I’m guessing peach is the cup interior, and seagull the exterior… it’s a lovely mottled grey colour.] This colourway originated in the early 50s and is denoted on the base of the cups/saucers as ‘C99.’

You don’t get much tea in them, but they are so elegant – they would make any tea party a sophisticated affair. And Poole is very collectible.

For sale: $AUD120
