Carter and Company / Poole Pottery

Categories: Commerce

Ceramic tile manufacturers. Founded by Jesse Carter, a builders’ merchant and ironmonger from Surrey. It was later renamed as the Poole Pottery.

The Carter company produced much of the ceramic tiling used on London Underground stations built in the 1930s and, of particular note, made the relief tiles, designed by Harold Stabler, showing symbols of London – some of these can still be seen on stations such as Bethnal Green and Manor House.
