Sells: China, collectibles and gifts
Sophistication: High, catering to the consumer as well as to the connoisseur
Comments: Portmeirion has been making waves in the tableware industry recently, with their rescue of the Spode and Royal Worcester brands. Their strength appears to me the colorful, ever popular Botanic Gardens and it’s offshoots, Botanic Roses, Strawberry Fair and many. That their wares are usually dishwasher safe is a big plus in today’s day and age. Their US site is currently under construction, but no doubt will complement their UK site with offerings tailored to the US market.
