Poole Pottery - Shire Library (Paperback)Will Farmer (author)
An illustrated history of one of Britain's most popular potteries, by a rising star of the 'Antiques Roadshow'.
Poole Pottery is a great British institution, and for more than 130 years has been in the very first rank of producers of tiles, mosaic flooring and advertising panels – as well as the pottery that remains its most famous and collectible product. Founded by Jesse Carter in 1873 as 'Carter's Industrial Tile Factory', the company went on to flourish in the hands of Carter's son and, in 1921, joined forces with Henry Stabler and John Adams to add art deco pottery to its list of products. 'Carter Stabler Adams', which would come to be known simply as Poole Pottery, was responsible for two of the most distinctive lines in the industry's history: the Delphis and Aegean designs.
In this extensively illustrated book, Will Farmer gives a lovingly detailed account of a unique and distinctively British company.
