The Summer Garland pattern is a collection of small variations of the favourite flower motifs from the Botanic Garden range, which have been woven into a wreath design.
In 1994 Portmeirion launched a revolutionary new material for their pottery. After extensive research they produced a product that had all the qualities of both bone china and porcelain but without any animal bone. They named this amazing new substance 'Portmeirion China' and Suan Williams-Ellis created a whole new elegant shape of ware to compliment this feat, which she named Moonstone. The designers at Portmeirion initially developed five new designs for the new Moonstone shape which were Ladies Flower Garden, Summer Garland, Ancestral Jewels, Welsh Wild Flowers and Moonstone Gold.
