Moorcroft Pottery 1914 Spanish Garden Teapot
Originally founded as a studio in 1897 within a large ceramic company. James Macintyre & Co. Moorcroft pottery soon made its mark on the world. Designs came from 24 year old William Moorcroft who personalized each piece of pottery produced with his own signature or initials. In 1904, Moorcroft won a gold medal at the St Louis International Exhibition and followed up the achievement with further medals and commendations, culminating in the appointment of the Moorcroft company as Potter to HM The Queen in 1928.
This teapot was produced for two years 1914-16. This is a unique, hard to find decorative teapot with brilliant colors and decoration surrounding the entire piece. This teapot is known as the "Spanish Garden". A truly beautiful teapot as the pictures do not do it justice. This piece is just beautiful!
Exceptional teapot in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free of repairs. Normal minor crazing. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications on this piece. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic and signed appropriately with Moorcroft. All images are original and un-edited. Measurements Height: 4 1/2", Length: 8 1/2" , Base: 2 5/8"
