This red earthenware ‘Persian Deer’ dish was made in the mid 1920s by Poole based Carter, Stabler & Adams. Designed by Truda Adams, the dish was painted on a clear glaze over white slip by Gertie Warren. A similar dish was exhibited at industry shows around the world.
Post WWI saw an increase in demand for decorative pottery ranges. The partnership of Carter, Stabler & Adams was formed meet this demand. A subsidiary of Carter & Co, the company developed rapidly in the 1920s and 30s. This was in part due to Truda Adams’ vibrant and colourful designs, carefully interpreted on the pots by skilled paintresses.
