Vintage Moorcroft Vase in the Hibiscus Pattern by Walter Moorcroft
We have 1 in stock.
A vintage Moorcroft vase in the Hibiscus pattern. This pattern was originally designed by Walter Moorcroft in 1949 and then redeveloped around 1960.
Moorcroft began using year cyphers in 1990 to show when an item was actually made however no year cypher appears on this vase. Some production runs could be quite long, particularly with popular designs such as Hibiscus, and it can be difficult to accurately date an item, however from the detail above the vase can reasonably be assessed as a genuine vintage vase.
The vase has a more unusual design which features both red and yellow hibiscus flowers, producing an interesting and very attractive decorative vase.
Antique and vintage items may have imperfections due to usage and age. Any major issues will be always be highlighted in the description however please also study images carefully.
The vase has a small shallow chip on the base but this does not protrude to the side hence does not affect display. It may appear as light mark in the image so is mentioned here for accuracy. The vase is otherwise in excellent condition with only very minor glaze crazing.
This vase would normally be offered for sale around the £100 mark but has been heavily discounted to take account of the issue on the base, so a chance to admire true art pottery without a hefty price tag.
This item is available online only however if visiting the Centre please visit Cabinet 138 situated on the Lower Ground Floor to view a selection of Moorcroft Pottery from early vintage pieces to more modern examples.
