Hand Painted

Formerly a paintress at Wedgewood, Margaret Brian, a lithographer at Portmeirion, set up a hand painting department at the factory in the early 1990’s, creating a team of very skilled handpaintresses known as ‘The Longton Ladies’. They created many new designs including ‘Mandarin’ for John Lewis, ‘Lemon Grove’ for Harrods and ‘Orchard Fruits’ for Lawleys. Many more designs followed including ‘The Lanelli Cockerel’, ‘Summer Fruits’, ‘Peach Tree’, ‘Sweet Pea’, ‘Barnyard’, ‘Portmeirion Dolphin’, ‘Magnolia’ and ‘Kitchen Garden’. The quality of the work by ‘The Longton Ladies’ was far superior to anything available in the United Kingdom at that time but the department was closed in the spring of 1997 due to company re-structuring.

This highly collectable, limited edition, hand painted 8 inch plate, bearing a stylised yellow rose, was made by one of by ‘The Longton Ladies’ specifically for sale in the world famous American Department store Macey’s in 1996 and comes in a presentation box.
