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 Pottery - Page 2 Empty Portmeirion Finally introduce new product

Post by AndreaJ 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?

Portmeirion Pottery - Page 2 Empty Portmeirion, Secla or Bristolia?

Post by Flintztone August 23rd 2013, 10:34 pm

Unable to find any information on this particular vase.   It appears to be well made and I only purchase it because of the abstract design that stood out from the other vases I've seen.    At a guess and not being knowledgeable on the subject matter, I would have said this vase was made in the 60's, this is only by the wear.    I'm hopeing someone will be able to help me.    Irish pottery was also one of the areas I looked at.   There are no markings to help, so look forward to any information you can provide.

my first thought was Portmeirion - isn't it the totem pattern? but may be a looky-likey

Looks like 60s-70s Hornsea or Portmeirion or even Italy -

Or Portuguese

Just went through some of the sites you have mentioned.   Can confirm  that it is Portmeirion, made by Susan Williams-Ellis in the 60's, the totem range.   Not found this shape though, but at least I am in the right direction, thanks to you guys Most Excellent .

Having browsed the net and found an identical, I found that it may not be a vase after all, but a storage pot.Shock

Yes! I too, now finding them everywhere. When I initially searched via. google, nothing came up. Looks more like a vase to me, anyway. I think the quality and unique abstract design is fantastic. Shame about the current value though, I wonder why? Thank you all, ever so much for your help. Most Excellent

A certain online auction website has a fantastic coffee set in this motif right now. I spoke too soon. They have quite a few.

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!
