Poole Pottery was founded in 1873 when builder’s merchant and ironmonger, Jesse Carter, bought a run-down tile manufacturing company on the quayside.
Jesse Carter’s son Owen developed the art pottery – by the end of the First World War, a wide range of decorative wares was being made.
The Denby group based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire acquired the Poole Pottery brand in 2012. Online items are manufactured in Middleport, Stoke-on-Trent.
An outlet shop for Poole Pottery still exists at Poole Quay, next door to Pavers Shoes.
