Moorcroft Pottery 1950-86 Pink Magnolia White Lobed Shape Vase WM
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. This did little for James Mcintyres name and reputation, and in 1913 the inevitable split occurred. William marched his workforce across Cobridge Park to a new factory in Sandbach Road where Moorcroft pottery is still made today. Money came from Liberty, the famous London store and Liberty continued to control Moorcroft until 1962. 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. Moorcroft vases are difficult to find in any condition.
This 7 1/2 inch tall vase was produced between around 1987 which is determined by the mark on the bottom. This vase is unusual in that it is glazed white instead of the normal cobalt blue. This vase has a beautiful hand painted design of pink magnolia flowers that surround the entire body of the vase. A truly beautiful vase. The perfect size to fit in your curio cabinet.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free of repairs. Normal minor crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
