The Victorian Cook's Collection
In 1996, Susan's daughter Anwyl Cooper-Willis, Design Director at Portmeirion Pottery, launched a new range for the company called 'The Victorian Cook's Collection'. Using various sources of typical Victorian book illustrations and 'scraps' and Mrs Beeton's Book of Home Management for inspiration, Anwyl created 'a light hearted design for serious cooks'. Anwyl used small illustrations of herbs, sentiments and kitchen gadgets printed in green with a hint of green behind the motifs, creating a clean but decorative design. There was only a small range of items in the collection such as a 9in mixing bowl, storage jars, Staffordshire jugs and large serving pieces but it also included a number of accessories including oven gloves, aprons, teatowels and teacosy.
