Re:- Portmeirion Starfire

Post by puregaia on March 19th 2011, 12:49 pm

Hi Peter,
I have most of the Jade Portmeirion set, and I can say it is truly beautiful, I have never seen anything quite like it for such a beautiful and organically natural looking pattern...it looks rather like a snowflake pattern, edged with whichever colourway, in my case:- Jade. Very natural looking and it feels nice also. Maybe some have found this to be an impractical design, but I have not experienced this problem. I purchased the large plates, the small plates, the large bowls and the mugs.
I also have the bowls from the Portmeirion botanical collection - which is what first triggered my interest in Portmeirion, but I don't think they are nearly as nice as the Starfire collection.
Sarah.

Portmeirion Finally introduce new product

Post by AndreaJ on March 14th 2012, 6:59 pm

I have been selling Portmeirion for over 20 years but recently I thought their products were looking tierd. The company bought Spode and Royal Worcester 3 years ago and have spent all their time developing these at the expense of Portmeirion. Thankfully they have now introduced a number of new ranges including Exotic Botanic Garden and some new motifs.
Do collectors think this is enough or is there still something missing? What do you think, let me know. I want the compant to do well and speak to them often so I'm happy to pass on ideas. Whats missing from the ranges? What do you think about the new designs?
and let me know your thoughts.
Thanks

This is undoubtedly the "Totem" pattern created in 1963.
What size is it?

This tiny little jug holds just about enough cream for someone who doesn't like cream in their coffee. It is the only piece I've ever seen in either the pattern or shape. The pattern is Pantomime.

Picked up this John Cuffley zodiac mug (Virgo) because it's my daughter's sign. She thinks it's creepy ;)

I love the colour, the graphic, and the size - this holds about a gallon of coffee!

Early Portmeirion coffeepot, decorated with transfer printed ships and compass.
Difficult to see in the photos but it does have a black lid.
Unmarked on the base. Spotted another on google, also unmarked on the base.

I've got loads of that stuff Naomi - a whole dinner service + cups, mugs etc etc. I hardly use it anymore which is a bit of a shame - comes in very handy at Christmas though!!!
