2010 is Portmeirion's 50th anniversary and the celebrations began last year with the limited re-release of the Magic Garden coffee set. They're also going back to the archives for Portmeirion Originals, re-issues of some of their designs from the 1950s and 60s. 

The range uses some of Susan William-Ellis' most famous and distinctive designs. Pictured is the 1964 designed Variations mug, which apparently was one of her favourites. There's also the Dolphin mug from 1959, the Magic City from 1966 and, my favourite, the Totem mug, originally designed in 1963. 

If you can't track down one of the originals, these re-issues cost £15 each
