Poole Pottery

Poole pottery 1950s AB Read Ripple pattern gravy boat.

Poole Pottery is a well known English pottery brand, based in Staffordshire. The pottery was founded in 1873 on Poole quayside, and produced pottery there by hand until moving to a factory in 1999.

Production continued at a new site in Sopers Lane until its closure in 2006 but the brand name lives on.

For me, Poole pottery epitomises mid-century style with it’s beautiful glazes and stylist retro designs.

I recently acquired this beautiful dinner set, comprising 6 dinner plates, 6 salad plates, 6 desert plates, 2 tureens, 3 platters, 6 soup couples and saucers and a gravy boat and under plate.  It’s pretty unusual to find a complete dinner set in anything these days but this was one of the rarer patterns, “Ripple”, designed by AB Read in the 1950s.

Sadly I’ll probably have to split it to pass it on and this always seems a bit of a shame as it really is stunning in its entirety.  A wonderful example of the stylish and modern designs that Poole pottery was creating in the period known as mid-century covering the 1950s to the 1970s.  The entire set is available from http://www.antikseramika.co.uk, please contact mail@antikseramika.co.uk for further information.
