Poole platter, serving dish and aperitif dish
made in England, 1960s.
Poole is a very well known pottery, which started operating in Dorset, England in 1873 – and continues today. I am particularly fond of the pottery produced between the 30s and 60s.
Poole is well known for its ‘Twintone’ pottery– their expression – a simple, stylish contrast of two colours. These three pieces are from the twintone series C104: sky blue & dove grey.
I have featured Poole before, and other twintone colourways – the elegant 50s and 60s styling and the deep pastel colours and very beautiful. Poole is very collectable, and there are many websites devoted to it’s fandom.
These three pieces are in excellent vintage condition, and are for sale: $AU75

This Poole egg cup set is in the twintone colourway [THEIR term] ‘Seagull and Teal’. The teal makes for a nice connection with the tea caddy. The ’seagull’ is a lovely mottled pinky-creamy-colour. The five piece set is in excellent condition; the plate under the egg cups has circular indentations to help steady the cups.
Bushells tea caddies, tin and mass produced to mark commemorative occasions, are now quite sought after. Here we have her Maj, Prince Philip and both countries’ flags to mark Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953. This caddy has now sold.
