Portmeirion Totem cups + saucers x5

Set of cups and saucers in amber and Totem pattern, designed by Susan Williams-Ellis for Potmeirion Pottery. Classic shape and four embossed designs on the cups with a plain saucer.

Totem is the range that defined Portmeirion Pottery in the 1960s. Susan William-Ellis combined the Portmeirion 'Cylinder' shape with patterns derived from native American Indian cultural art in raised relief. The glazing highlights the raised patterns in a startling way. Totem was produced in amber, olive green, blue and a rare white finish. The coffee set is the most iconic design of the series.
