An attractive mid sized modern Moorcroft trial vase.
The vase has a height of 155mm (6.1'').
Regarding age the base marking on this vase include the 'Anchor' year cypher indicating 2016 as the year of production, hence it can be dated very accurately.
Moorcroft pattern designs start as trials and are produced by the designer until a final version is selected for production or a decision made not to proceed. Some collectors concentrate on trial items perhaps because of the individuality they offer or because they prefer a trial version to the final product.
The vase has been closely inspected and is considered to be in excellent condition. The glaze has a clarity that highlights the colours superbly.
The vase represents a different style to the very colourful designs often associated with Moorcroft, and offers a collector an opportunity to add variety to a collection. Perhaps as a trial vase it may also be of further interest to a collector interested in the production processes as well as the beauty of a item itself.
Given its size it may be considered large enough to display as a separate stand alone item, perhaps in an entrance hall or reception room, as well as been part of a collection.
The vase would certainly complement many modern settings where minimalistic designs seem to be the order of the day.
This Moorcroft trial vase is available online only however if visiting the Centre in York please visit Cabinet 138 situated on the Lower Ground Floor to view other examples of Moorcroft pottery from early vintage pieces to more modern items.
