This is a perfect little casserole dish from Poole Pottery's unusually named Lucullus range, designed by Robert Jeffersen in 1961. We love the ergonomic design, a curved pot with wide handles, so that when you lift it out of the oven it fits beautifully in your hands. It has a wonderful rich teal colour with mushroom decorations. This neat little pot will hold a large 3 pints and can be used in the oven and dishwasher.
In perfect seemingly unused condition, this would make a fabulous gift, as it is both decorative and useful. We have never seen a nicer one of these!
The Lucullus range includes fish and egg bakers, and casserole dishes. Look out for items with Cockerel, Corn on the Cob and Aubergine Designs as well as shrimps, prawns and scallops. The whole collection is so classy they would make a really great kitchen display.
