Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Anyone for coffee? Portmeirion Totem from the 1960s.

As a follow-up to the last blog-post, here are the coffee pots from the Portmeirion Totem range, designed by Susan Williams-Ellis in the 1960s.

I don't think people use coffee pots as much as they once did but the shape and surface texture on these pots make them worth keeping, even if it's only to have on display.


  1. Stunning!!! They have a certain oriental elegance......They look great together....

  2. Yes, these are definitely worth holding on to, they are truly works of art- simply stunning! I find myself buying coffee and teapots too, even if I don't use them... They're just beautiful objects:-)
