Porthmadog Pottery, Wales

Post by NaomiM on April 24th 2013, 5:45 pm

Little cone-shaped salt shaker
Stamped PORTHMADOG WALES on the base.







Not found out much about the pottery other than they changed their mark later on, and some of those pieces are signed J. Jones.
This seems to be a 60s piece.

Seems there was a J. Jones and a M.L. Jones decorating the pieces.

Although unmarked I'm pretty sure this is Porthmadog

Portmadog Pottery

Post by NaomiM on October 6th 2014, 2:25 am

Vase with dragon, signed Peta and stamped Portmadog.
Seems that Portmadog and Porthmadog are the same place in Gwynydd, Wales, but at some point the h was added. The pottery uses the name Portmadog.

I thought Moffat when I picked it up. It's quite heavily potted which is the opposite of the other pieces of Portmadoc on here.  So I was surprised to see it marked Portmadoc. I'm wondering if these are all one pottery that's changed hands, or different potteries in the area.

Moffat is on the borders in Scotland , I have a large collection of their stuff so the only connection I could make is your potter worked at moffat and moved Shrugs

There's a bit about the Porthmadog pottery on another forum.
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=385183.9

According to which it was in the basement of the Snowdon Mill, which was run as the "Crafts Centre Cymru" by a man called David Lewis from the mid-1960s. There's also a mention on the website of Gwynneth Rixon who worked there in the late 1990s.

The mill has since been redeveloped for residential use.
