Portmeirion Totem side plates x5

Set of side plates in the Totem pattern and amber glaze, designed by Susan Williams-Ellis for Portmeirion Pottery. Classic embossed designs around the edge of a flat coloured body.

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.
