Poole Pottery has a long history that dates back over 100 years and can be traced to another company called Carter’s Industrial Tile Manufactory. This was the company that would later transition into Poole Pottery and they were well known for making much of the tile that appeared in the London Underground stations that were built in the 1930’s.
When three potters came together they formed another company called Carter Stabler Adams, which would soon be known as Poole Potttery around the time of the 2nd world war. They produced such notable lines as Twintone, Delphis and Traditional. With a number of notable designers and artists, the company produced some colorful, high quality pottery that would go on to be sought after by collectors.
Poole pottery has been known for making high quality handmade pottery from Poole, Dorset, England from 1873 onward. It wasn’t until 1999 that the company moved from their original location and in 2006, that location was closed. Recently the company has re-opened in Burslem, Staffordshire after a series of ownership changes.
