In 2013 Portmeirion introduced a new dinner plate in the Botanic Garden range, the Sunflower:

Here is the Wilmots Early Red, one of the Gooseberries. There is also the Queen of Sheba:

They are early motifs, retired soon after the range was launched.

The Hazel Nut is another early motif:

The White Dutch Currant was replaced by the Red Currant:

They are wonderful to look at and look great with a fruit salad.

I have two different Hazel Nut bowls, one motif is much larger than the other:

Also one bowl has the leaf border, the other is borderless:

I am still hunting for more different motifs.
