Vintage Portmeirion Phoenix Black Coffee Can

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

After the success of commemorative mugs for the Moon Landing and the Mayflower's 350th Anniversary using their silk-screen printing machine, Susan Williams-Ellis devised the idea of a set of twelve Zodiac designs. These she had designed by her assistant designer John Cuffley, previously a jazz drummer who worked at Portmeirion from 1967- 1971. He had wonderful calligraphy skills and it was he that also produced the Moon Landing and Mayflower designs. John designed fantastic detailed illustrations of the twelve signs and if you look carefully, the bodies of each sign looks as if it wearing 70's crocheted garments, a style so very contemporary of the time.

This coffee can represents a Phoenix and has the backstamp pictured. These are very 70's and if you are missing one from the collection, now is your chance to replace it.

Measures: 8cm tall
