Buchan Portobello Scotland Thistleware, Stoneware Coffee Pot & Soup Bowls

23 Jan

Buchan Scotland dishes

Beautifully handmade and handpainted under the glaze stoneware dishes from Buchan Portobello Scotland. The background colour is a beautiful sky blue and the pattern is a thistle amidst heather and bluebells.

The thistle pattern was the most popular of the Buchan Portobello Company patterns, to the point where the goods were known as Thistle ware from 1946 on.  In 1949 the thistle trademark was officially registered and the works were known as the Thistle Pottery until the company closed in 1972.  The company relocated to Crieff from Montebello and continued with the Thistle pattern and a few others until its closure in 1999. Apparently the company was registered again and survived with one lone potter and a single decorator who continue to make the Thistle pattern to this day.

The above information is attributed to the following web site of Portobello Heritage Trust. You can read more information on this pottery company at  http://www.portobelloheritagetrust.co.uk/potterymanufacture.html
