Poole Pottery - mostly tableware

The twintone colour combinations are around since 1936. Some combinations were commercially more successful than others (Sepia and Mushroom for example) and were used for decades. Others such as Mushroom and Peachbloom lasted only a year due to their unpopularity. 

1940's glazes:
C50 Pink and Seagull,
C54 Sepia and Mushroom
C57 Ice Green and Seagull 
C65 Magnolia and Shagreen
C85 Sky and Magnolia


Later colour combinations:
C90 Sunshine and Seagull (very scarce!)
C95 Red Indian and Magnolia
C96 Ice Green and Mushroom (discontinued 1965)
C97 Peach Bloom and Seagull (discontinued 1968)
C98 Peach Bloom and Ice Green
C99 Ice Green and Peach Bloom
C100 Peach Bloom and Mist Blue
C101 Mushroom and Peach Bloom
C102 Lime Yellow and Moonstone Grey
C103 Lime Yellow and Seagull
C104 Sky Blue and Dove Grey
C105 Grey Pebble
C106 Black Pebble
C107 Sweetcorn and Brazil - produced only in the contour shape

Another popular glaze used on the tableware was the Cameo Glaze (a shinier glaze than the twintone colors)

Blue Moon/Royal Blue - these two glazes appear to be the same, however, I am not entirely sure
Celeste - introduced in 1965
Golden Buff
Heather Rose - introduced approx 1961
Sunshine Yellow

These pieces have usually white glaze inside and white lids. The glaze is shinier than the Twintone glazes.

The Blue Moon glaze was also the basis for the Lucullus range (using the new transfer print method), launched in 1962 and designed by Robert Jefferson. Another design was the 'Herb Garden', launched in 1963 and based on a sunshine yellow glaze. The contour shape, designed by Jefferson was also used for the 'Desert Song' design. This was designed by Pat Summers.
