10 May Portmeirion The Ladies Flower Garden

We have just added some items in the Ladies Flower Garden range of fine china. We don't get this design that often so take a look and get yours while you can.

The Ladies Flower Garden design was one of five designs created in 1994 for the new Portmeirion China. Ladies Flower Garden was derived from a book of the same name by a Mrs Loudon in 1842. Eighteen bouquets of fabulous flowers were chosen and arranged by Susan and her daughter Anwyl Cooper-Willis. The vibrantly beautiful flowers are carefully reproduced in 21 colours and are surrounded by a twisted ribbon border. Portmeirion China was developed by Portmeirion's technical director Philip White, a clever marriage of porcelain and bone china, without the bone. It is very white and translucent, but is oven-to-table safe and resistant to chipping. Because of the tremendous qualities of this new material, Susan developed a new shape called Moonstone, which was a simple but classical elegant form, perfect for complimenting the new designs, which included Ancestral Jewels, Summer Garland, Welsh Wild Flowers and Moonstone Gold.
