Portmeirion large Totem storage jar

Unusual, large storage jar from Portmeirion's Totem range in amber glaze and white interior, with ceramic lid. Designed by Susan Williams-Ellis.

Totem is the range that defined Portmeirion Pottery in the 1960s. Susan Williams-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.
