Poole Pottery – Delphis, Freeform or Traditional?

If you’re thinking of buying a piece of Poole Pottery, you might be wondering what sort to buy. One of the UK’s oldest potteries, Poole’s output has varied considerably over the last 100 years or so.

The Poole on offer here at Perfect Pieces is split into three different groups – Delphis/Aegean/Studio ware, Poole Freeform and Traditional Poole/Carter Stabler & Adams ware.

I’ve included a photo of some of the possibilities below:

The first piece pictured above is a Poole Pottery Spear dish from the Aegean range. The Aegean was developed by Leslie Elsden following on from the bright and ever recognisable Poole Delphis range developed by Robert Jefferson.

The second piece is a Poole Pottery Freeform vase designed by Poole’s well-known designer, Alfred Read. The Freeform range Poole was developed after WWII and was made during the 1950s, providing a noticeably more modern style of design to that available a few years earlier.

The piece on the right is an example of Poole’s red earthenware pottery and was produced during the late 1920s – early 1930s. This design is typical of this era and very similar to the earlier pieces that bear the Carter, Stabler & Adams pottery mark.

So, whichever style of Poole Pottery you choose there certainly is something for everyone!
