Poole Twintone butter dish

Poole Twintone butter dish

This Poole Pottery Twintone design was first introduced in the late 1930s, with this Ice Green & Seagull colour combo first used in the early 1940s, but the maker’s mark on this butter dish dates it a fair bit later (between 1959-1967). That still makes it in the region of fifty years old, and bar some very minor damage to the one corner, this dish is in perfect nick! It’s quite a small butter dish (could it possibly be a cheese dish?), so wouldn’t take a whole brick, but it would be great for serving butter on your dinner table when you don’t want a whole block, but still want your butter covered.

A lovely piece of mid-century design from one of my very favourite pottery houses!
