Poole Pottery Twintone

Poole Pottery (Carter, Stabler and Adams) produced two-coloured tableware from the 1930s, but stopped production during World War Two. The range was re-launched in the late 1940s and called Twintone. It was used on three shapes of tableware, table accessories and decorative ware right up to 1981.
Twintone glazes are described as ‘semi-matt’ or ‘vellum’ because of their smooth feel and soft sheen, and they always come in two distinctive colours. Many Twintone pieces can be identified by the ‘C and number’ on their base, which defines the colour combination.
