About Portmeirion – The Botanic Garden ‘Rhododendron’ – Small Mug
Portmeirion was founded in 1960 by the legendary pottery designer Susan Williams-Ellis
The ‘ The Botanic Garden’ pattern was designed by Williams-Ellis in 1972.
Her mission was to create pottery that not only looked good but also fit in very well with everyday life.
‘The Botanic Garden’ was slightly controversial as department stores did not believe that people wanted a different image on every piece. It turned out that Williams-Ellis was right as the design become one of the best selling designs of it’s time.
All ‘ The Botanix Garden’ is made of slightly off-white earthenware. Older pieces are not dishwasher proof.
