Portmeirion Lanhydrock by Pat Albeck

Portmeirion produced the Lanhydrock range in the eighties.


On her own website the designer, Pat Albeck,  writes:

“The Trust asked me to go to my favourite kitchen for inspiration for a new range. James McClaren was the architect of Lanhydrock (near Bodmin in Cornwall) and I think he must have really enjoyed designing the kitchen. It has an amazing and elaborate cast iron kitchen range. The pierced pattern on the oven door and the very simple dark red rope design which edged the white tiles, was my source of inspiration. I added a few chickens and copper pans on some of the pieces. This is my very favourite National Trust range.”


There are many different items in the range, but I have never seen a teapot. Are there any about?


The pattern looks really well on the dishes and plates:
