Portmeirion Coffee Pot In Gloss White Totem, Designed By Susan Williams-Ellis.
This lovely cylinder style coffee pot has a minor hairline at the top of the pot. There is a chip to the base and a minor chip to the spout along with some minor age related crazing. Please see photographs.
The Totem design of Portmeirion was much imitated by other potteries, but never to the same quality or excellent design.

Possibly one of the most iconic designs by Susan Williams-Ellis, Totem was launched in 1963 and continued into the early 1970's. Totem is on display in museums here and abroad and appears in publications as a design symbol of its day. Totem was produced over the widest range of Portmeirion's shapes of the time. Very early versions of the Totem cylinder teapots had a shorter cut off spout. Totem was produced in amber, olive green, sage green, cobalt blue, ice blue, celadon and white.
A must for any Portmeirion collector.
