Poole Twintone Gravy Boat

R150.00 R130.00

Going on the style of this Poole gravy boat, I would have thought that it was a fair bit older than it actually is. The glaze, which is a combination of ‘Ice Green‘ (more of a blue than a green really) and ‘Seagull’ (a mottled grey) was introduced as part of Poole’s Twintone series in the 1930s, but continued to be produced right through to the ’80s, a sign of a great design if ever there was one! This gravy boat with matching plate was produced towards the end of that period, with the maker’s mark dating the set to between 1973 and 1974 – if I had gone with my gut I would have guessed that it dated to the 1960s, if not even a bit earlier- thank goodness for Google!

Dimensions: Jug – 9cm tall x 9cm wide x 20cm long (incl handle); Saucer – 19.5cm long x 10cm wide
