A vintage Moorcroft vase in the Hibiscus pattern.
The hibiscus 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, and as there is no year cypher on this vase it can reasonably be assessed as made prior to 1990 and of a genuine vintage age.
The vase has no chips or cracks and is in excellent overall condition.
Many pieces of vintage and antique Moorcroft pottery can show significant levels of crazing, possibly due to water ingress (with vases) or storing in areas subject to temperature variation, where the glaze and base material expand and contract at different rates.
This vase however has not been affected by crazing hence allows a collector to acquire a vintage piece and maintain it in an excellent state by appropriate use and storage.
Available online only however if visiting the Antiques Centre please visit Cabinet 138 situated on the Lower Ground Floor to view other items of Moorcroft Pottery, from early vintage pieces to more modern examples, plus a selection of collectibles and items of silverware.
