Talisman was introduced in 1962 and used the relatively new technique of screen printing.
The design was a great hit and looked modern, up to date and very trendy for the time. Talisman was available in Green/Blue, Yellow/Orange, and Pink/Purple and proved a big success in kitchen ware. The range of products in the Talisman design continued until 1968.
A must for any Portmeirion collector.
