I've found that it's still possible to pick up items from this range without having to shell out a fortune. And, in my view, it's worth looking out for.
Lucullus was designed by Robert Jefferson and launched by Poole in 1962. The colourful illustrations look very stylish – in a way they remind me of some of the designs produced in Norway and Denmark around the same time.
To be strictly accurate, the small dish shown in the pictures with a yellow underside is not a Lucullus item at all, it's from a range called Herb Garden, again designed by Robert Jefferson and first produced in 1963.
It's amazing how fresh and contemporary Lucullus looks today despite it now being almost 50 years old.
