Has the price of traditional Poole fallen a lot? I was looking at the old 40s 50 Bluebird and stuff and it seems very cheap?

So the GS pieces are still expensive but what about the Tony Morris stuff and the Studio pieces are they still going strong?

All the Bluebird stuff / CSA was seen as the height of good taste when I was growing up when we lived in Dorset?

What Poole is up and what is down please? Shrugs

You see that 50's 60's mass produced tableware stuff in charity shops quite a bit. It seems quite unsellable nowadays unless it is very cheap indeed. Charity shops of course always think it is worth something. But it seems to have gone the price way of nearly all Stoke/staffordshire mass produced items

Tony Morris' better pieces are still selling well but not being sold very often, his lesser pieces tend to sell for £300-£400

Poole produced many different styles across the decades and these come in and out of fashion. Currently traditional is out of fashion although good patterns and good shapes will still do well. 1950's freeform is still collectable though not as hot as 5 or more years ago. Early studio has gone very collectable, especially since lockdown time. Whereas the early delphis has aways been regarded as the most collectable the later 1970's era pieces are now quite in vogue as the brighter colours are what seems to be favoured. It mirrors the fashion for west german pottery collecting. Probably the biggest seller at the moment is 'modern' Poole i.e. 1999 onwards, go onto ebay and sellers are asking mad money - and sometimes getting it. I used to buy modern pieces cheaply and sell them cheaply but I can no longer get new stock at a low price. Its all about the colours and glazes rather than a specialist collection. GS and TM are still collected but GS probably gets best prices as his vases will always be easier to display than a 16" dish. Just as bowls never sell as well as vases because they are more difficult to display.

Thanks PP. If you don't regularly deal in Poole it's hard to keep up

Yes, PP, fully agree with your breakdown.
I have tended to avoid the newer stuff, but I think I need to brush up on it!

Trouble is - I don't like it - patterns seem a bit crude - perhaps I'm getting old

It is just 'giftware' and we're not talking hundreds of pounds so a different class of buyer to your 'specialist collector'. Its all about what the young people are buying. All I know is that I don't think I can class myself as young anymore. Probably only they know whats 'on trend' !

That's the stuff, not highly desirable now I'm assuming.
So is the whiter stuff 50s? and the more highly richly decorated is earlier?

A mix of 30's and 50's traditional pcs. Very little was made in the 40s. The 30's pcs look to be mainly the larger items at the back with the more complex art deco patterns. Its ok having mainly one type of product on your stand but then you have to be sure there will be enough potential buyers, on top of which August bank holidays mean that it can be very difficult to know who might come. What are usually refered to as 'sprig' pattern items i.e. the preserve pots, eggcups are probably 50's , well painted but out of fashion and of little value.
