Dive Into This Poole
Poole Pottery was at once a traditional and somewhat conservative English company dating back to the late Victorian era. Always willing to change with the times, they moved boldly into modernism in the fifties hiring artists to brighten up their wares. Eventually they brought on Carol Cutler who hand painted this colorful piece from the "Delphis" line sometime in the late 60's/ early 70's. The vibrancy of color and primitive lines remind me of the works of 80's icon Jean Michel Basquiat (see painting above).

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
