Description

Quality tableware Pottery in the form of  Portmeirion Botanic Garden. Now a retired design. Designed by Susan Williams-Ellis in 1972 based on antique botanical garden drawings. This Breakfast set consist of 16 Pieces and would adorn any breakfast Table.  From the Tea Cups and Plates  to napkin rings to a Vase to place your flowers to compliment the table and this pattern. All the pieces are listed below – no tea or coffee pots but they can be obtained on eBay. I have listed the patterns and they are all marked with the Pormeirion Botanic Garden back mark with the date 1972. Condition:  (See photographs) Both large Cups have a chip from the base; one has a small imperfection spot on the inner and another minute chip to lip.(Forget-Me-Not pattern). One of the saucers has a chip on the upper edge.  The Sugar or preserve Pot LID has a small chip under.  One of the Napkin Rings has a hairline crack. For a used set this is in good condition.  No damage that I can see on the rest.  Each  piece had a different flower assigned and then Susan added a variety of insects and butterflies to each motif.
