Moorcroft Pottery 1990 Cobalt Blue Hibiscus Dresser Box
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.
Moorcroft boxes are difficult to find in any condition.This piece was produced between 1990 which is determined by the impressed mark on the bottom. This dresser box has a beautiful hand painted design of a hibiscus flowers that are on the top of the lid while body of the box has the 3 flowers that match the colors of the flowers on the lid. A truly beautiful dresser box.
Exceptional dresser box 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 the Moorcroft symbol. All images are original and un-edited.
