“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” These famous words compose the first line of the poem, “A Visit from St. Nicholas” and were published in 1823 by Clement Clarke Moore. The poem was written for his two daughters and was later submitted to the Troy Sentinel for publication. Because of the poem’s worldwide popularity, International China decided to commit the famous words of the poem to china!
After soliciting the famous folk artist Susan Winget to illustrate the story, International released this popular pattern. Later, the rights to Christmas Story were purchased by the renowned Portmeirion Studios. Today, Susan Winget continues working with Portmeirion Studios to create intricate pieces for this unique pattern. Each piece from the Christmas Story pattern features a different line from Moore’s famous poem and an accompanying illustration.
Featured here are many of these pieces that were discontinued in 2002. They are all brand new and the majority of them come with their original boxes. Such a treat to have wonderful this collection of the Christmas Story by Portmeirion in store! Other Christmas Portmeirion treats here too!
