Portugalís remarkable pottery traditions date from the Middle Ages. Nearly lost to us 50 years ago under the guise of progress, Portugalís pottery heritage was revived in the 1970Ďs. Today Portuguese ceramic artistry is a growing business. Portuguese artisans now produce a beautiful array of pottery, in patterns ranging from reproductions of original 17th Century designs to contemporary pieces in a luscious range of hues, patterns and shapes. ~ Ann Marie

Portuguese Pottery & Imported Pewter Stoneware from Portugal

Portugal is an amazingly picturesque country, embraced from one end to the other by the Atlantic Ocean, and steeped in European architecture. Even the sagely Lord Byron once proclaimed the tiny village of Cintra, in Estremadura, as the most beautiful village in the world. It's been home to some of the finest craftsmen in the world, and its pottery heritage is as proud as it is breathtaking. Ann Marie's Portuguese pottery selection calls on that rich tradition, with an eye to the contemporary as well. In the catalog sections below, the pottery imported from Portugal will steal your eye and have you almost feeling the sea breeze on your face.

One of the most innovative and contemporary artisans from this region is Juliska. Considered one of the true modern masters in collectible tableware, the Country Estate pattern with its exquisitely rendered English landscapes is already being considered a classic favorite for the most fashionable brides. The Jardin du Monde and Ruby Jardin du Monde collections by Juliska are romance incarnate, with delicate scalloped edges and gentle patterns. Juliska also crafts an impressively stylish line of pewter stoneware, and several lines of mouth-blown glassware that are instant heirloom items. Functionality and elevated aesthetics is pure Juliska. Ann Marie's also proudly offers the 17th Century stylizations of Estrela de Conimbriga, which is hand crafted near the great Portuguese city of Coimbra. The intricate detailing pays homage to the earliest classics of Portuguese pottery design, and are among the most beautiful collector's pieces you will ever find.
