GiftCollector is an authorized retailer of Portmeirion pottery.
The Portmeirion Group acquired Spode in 2009. With an outstanding product range and rich history that complemented Portmeirion's existing brands, Portmeirion felt it very important to keep this great British brand alive.
The Portmeirion Group are dedicated to the development of Spode, its product ranges and its valued customers. As such, Portmeirion have brought the manufacture of many items in Spode's iconic ranges back to Stoke-on-Trent - a decision that has been welcomed by Spode's customers and collectors, and the Stoke-on-Trent community.
Josiah Spode I (1733-1797) founded the Stoke-on-Trent based pottery company, Spode, in 1770. His inherent skills and sheer dedication to his business lead to two major achievements that would redefine the pottery industry: the development of a winning formula for fine bone china, and the perfection of blue under-glaze printing.
Today, The Portmeirion Group is committed to the development of the Spode brand producing the high quality that is expected from Spode's ware.
The manufacture of many items has been brought back to our factory in Stoke-on-Trent which has been producing high quality ware for the Portmeirion brand for 50 years.
With Spode's Blue Italian, Woodland, Christmas Tree and Baking Days collections as well as Portmeirion, Royal Worcester and Pimpernel, The Portmeirion Group is extremely happy to be associated with this great British brand.
