Robert Jefferson Oven-to-Tableware range

This is the larger or two fish baking dishes from the Lucullus Oven-to-tableware range designed by Robert Jefferson in 1961.  Poole tableware was traditionally fired at a fairly high temperatures, but raising this further meant these earthenware dishes could withstand use in domestic ovens. The clay is semi-vitrified and has the feel and sound almost of an enamel tin tray as much as pottery.  The pattern was silkscreen printed and then hand coloured.  This dish was on a stall at the Elsecar Antiques Fair a couple of Sundays ago.  All I need do now is  to start cooking.
