A Moorcroft saucer in the Yacht design by William Moorcroft.
The diameter of the saucer is 139mm and the height 24mm.
Moorcroft was awarded the royal warrant in 1928 and on the base of this saucer is the impressed W Moorcroft signature with the impressed POTTER TO HM THE QUEEN mark to the lower right of the signature, plus the impressed MADE IN ENGLAND mark. These marks suggest an item was made between 1928 and 1949.
This actual yacht design on this saucer comes from the 1930's so sits comfortably within the date range shown by the backstamps, and is clearly a genuine vintage item.
In excellent condition with no chips or cracks, but of course the saucer would be made in accordance with the standards and methods of the day. There is a small over glazed raised white dot on the face of the saucer and three tiny rough dots on the base equally spaced in a triangle shape and presumably where it was attached during the firing process.
Overall an interesting item with a good deal of age and an opportunity for a collector to add one of the rarer pieces of Moorcroft pottery.
