Poole produced Everest ware from 1932. I like the angular details which are very art Deco in style. The bands are raised and painted in pastel shades of pink, grey, green or brown. The subtle colouring enhances the plain impact of these pieces. The neutral tones ensure the pieces have remained timeless. The high quality matt finish of the glaze adds to the quality finish of these expensive pieces.
I have several Everest pieces in my collection, but they are quite rare. Typically 'Everest' is stencilled onto the base along with a Poole backstamp.
