Portmeirion small Totem storage jar

Small storage jar from Portmeirion's Totem range, with original cork 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.
