Portmeirion Launch Fabulous Vintage Kelloggs China Range

If you are anything like me, mention the name ‘Portmeirion’ and it will conjure up images of blue and green pottery with flowers and foliage adorning butter dishes that are gifted to you from well meaning in laws. I have to confess it has been a while since I browsed their website and I was pleasantly surprised by their ‘Crazy Daisy’ range (currently 20% off stock by the way) which look like every flower under the sun has been ‘daisyified’ and painted onto kitchenware – brilliant! But the collection I am most excited about is the Kelloggs China Range, which brings a truly 50’s house wife retro feel to the home.

This Vintage Kellogg’s ceramics range is a vibrant collection and is sure to trigger a nostalgic feeling through design and add a touch of fun & colour to the kitchen. In the Vintage Kellogg’s collection for 2012 you will find tableware, cups and saucers, mugs and teapots, serving pieces and of course, breakfast items.

Kellogg’s have allowed Portmeirion designers to take pictures from their archives of advertising and packaging and create a range which is sure to evoke happy memories of a bygone era. This collection is suitable for any occasion from the relaxed family breakfast to afternoon tea or to simply add a touch of fun & colour to the kitchen. Or you can just buy a one off piece and add it to your collection of teapots for instance.

The collection is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe and items start from only £5 for a plate and range up to £30 for the iconic teapot. See the whole range at Portmeirion Kelloggs website when it is launched later on in May, but meanwhile, we have managed to source the collection elsewhere on the internet to give you first grab at this soon to be sold out collection.
