Retired Shape - Unique Dish!

I am pleased to offer a Botanic Garden shell dish featuring a Cyclamen or Cyclamen Repandum flower. The shell bowl shape has not been produced for at least several years and is no longer available.

This dish is in excellent condition with no signs of use or crazing.

Portmeirion Botanic Garden Cyclamen Shell Dish

The Cyclamen flower was an original oatmeal bowl motif, introduced in 1972, moved to a B & B plate in 1985, and still remains in production today. There are two different insect and flower versions. The oldest has four flower heads and the newer has nine heads. It was based on an image in an 1840 book,La Flore des Dames by A. Jacquemart.
