Poole Pottery Vintage Oven to Tableware For Sale
In the late 1950s and into 1960s Robert Jefferson created two very significant ranges of tableware for Poole Pottery. These are Lucullus and Herb Garden and include many novel pieces which can be sued from oven to table.
The Lucullus range is mainly decorated with vegetables, whilst there is also a baking plate decorated with shrimps. It has the Blue Moon glaze which is a teal or petrol blue with a glossy finish. The stunning thing about this tableware is the very fine quality of the pottery. It is amazingly fine, yet robust enough to be used in the oven.
The tableware is on a par with Pyrex being designed for baking in the oven, as well as storing items in the fridge. We have a round casserole dish and also the ergonomically shaped stewpot decorated with mushrooms for sale in the yay retro! shop at the moment.
Below are two of the baking plates ostensibly for fish, but could be used for anything and look wonderful on display when not in use.
The Herb Garden range has the highly sought after zingy acid lemon Sunshine Yellow glaze and herb patterns. This is much harder to get hold of, either as people did not buy so much of it when the range was launched, or because being an exciting glaze people have held on to the pieces they have and passed them down though their families.
This oven to tableware is perfect for display when not in use, we love the peapod patterns which are absolutely bang on trend at the moment.
The unusual shapes in the both the Lucullus and Herb Garden ranges still have the power to encourage creative recipes and are really fun to cook with!
