‘Thistlewood’ was made by Poole Pottery, it features a pattern is of Milk Thistle flowers on a rich honey speckled glaze with a brown rim. The compact shape was conceived in the early 1960s, with a distinctive ribbed edge, designed for easy stacking.
Thistlewood was not made in large quantities, and was discontinued early, making finding such a large set in perfect condition very rare – and that much more exciting!
Beneath is the printed Poole dolphin mark and Thistlewood design mark.
