Poole Pottery: Carter & Company and Their Successors, 1873-1998
Leslie Hayward, Paul Atterbury
Richard Dennis Publications, 1998 - Art - 208 pages
A revised edition of the classic work, with an additional 16 pages of color illustrations.
As one of the most important, most distinctive and most collectible of twentieth century British potteries, Poole is surprisingly little known. With its hundreds of color illustrations, and its highly detailed captions and information panels, this book represents the distillation of years of research by the well-known Poole historian Leslie Hayward, and makes accessible the extraordinary range of wares associated with the factory.
With its illustrations of virtually every known Poole product and its full list of factory marks and artists' monograms, this book is indispensable for collectors, and for anyone interested in the history of twentieth century design.
