Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Lucullus, designed by Robert Jefferson for Poole Pottery.

This Poole Pottery range of vintage oven-to table ware is Lucullus.

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.
