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!
