Portmeirion Pottery information

How Portmeirion Pottery started

Portmeirion is a brand that has been around for over a century. It's known for its iconic china, but it also carries textiles, dishware, and other home goods. The Portmeiron journey started in the 1960s by Susan Williams-Ellis and Euan Cooper-Willis. They wanted to create a new kind of porcelain that was both beautiful and affordable. This journey began with the purchase of A. E. Gray Ltd, which was originally based in Stoke-on-Trent. Wales. However, after the purchase it later moved to its current location in North Wales. It had its heyday during the 20th century when many people were looking for pieces that could be used in homes and restaurants.

The company founder, Susan Williams-Ellis named the company after the Italianate village of Portmeirion, Gwynedd, Wales that her father had designed for his friend Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Her brother-in-law William Henry Ellis organised the Portmeirion Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent to supply the pottery. Susan's daughter, Susannah Wright, took over as managing director in 1935 when Susan died unexpectedly of pneumonia. In 1984, Susannah retired and sold the company to Waterford Wedgwood plc., which was renamed V&A Waterford Wedgwood PLC in 1997. In 2006, they were bought by Kirkbi A/S who own LEGO Group.
