Compleat Angler

A selection of vintage Portmeirion Compleat Angler, designed by Susan williams-Ellis.

Susan Williams-Ellis and her husband had a thing about collecting beautifully illustrated books and colour illustrations from the 1800's. In this range of pottery, specifically designed by Susan with men in mind, and how difficult they can be finding presents for, they found a book lavishly illustrated with original paintings of fish by M J Lydon, called The Compleat Angler, which Susan used as the basis for the new pattern. Using the same title as the book, The Compleat Angler range was launched in 1981. Some of the fabulously illustrated fish used in the range are: Salmon, Great Lake Trout, Sewen (Welsh Trout), Gillaroo, Alpine Char, Perch and Pike and have either grey banding or a fern pattern around the edge. All the pieces have a Rococo-style makers mark on the base constructed of dolphins and shells.
