Looking For Some 1950’s Retro Glamour?

If you’re looking for some 1950’s style retro objects for your home then why not consider a piece of Poole Pottery Contemporary Freeform ware? See two examples below:

Poole PRB Alfred Read Vase - Poole Decorator Gwen Haskins Poole Alfred Read Freeform PRB Pattern Bowl

Poole Alfred Read vase & Poole Freeform bowl

As you’ll see from the two pieces pictures above the soft streamlined shapes and cool toned colouring really are reminiscent of the 1950’s era. The first piece is a Poole Pottery vase decorated in the Poole PRB pattern which was designed by Poole’s noted designer Alfred Read in the mid 1950’s. This particular piece has been decorated by Gwen Haskins who was a senior paintress at Poole at this time – and the pattern she’s painted onto this vase with cool brown tones and intertwined lines are indeed very modern in style.

The Poole bowl pictured above is also decorated in this stylish Poole pattern which was designed by Alfred Read. Believed to have been decorated by Diane Holloway this particular Poole bowl can be dated to the mid to late 1950’s. A perfect accompaniment to the streamlined vase at its side!

We have a wide range of Poole Pottery for sale including Poole Freeform pieces, vivid retro pieces from the Poole Delphis & Aegean ranges and some traditional-style Poole Pottery.

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!
