Seconds Autumn Equinox 46/12 Vase

Numbered Edition

For an instant you glimpse William Moorcroft’s Eventide c.1920, a wooded landscape on mottled pink and blues, and then you notice that you are entering into territory that you have not seen before, where dome-shaped hills of midnight blue fuse with almost iridescent pearl-pinks and violet-blues flushed with apple to sage greens, to release a sense of peace. Strangely, you become aware that the landscape is crisp and yet holds the mystery of an autumn equinox, where the sun and moon float simultaneously in the sky.

Under clouds of auburn, carmine and cherry-red leaves, the sky glimmers in chestnut gold before diffusing into a blue tide over undulating hills. The allure of this design is simple – designer, Emma Bossons has taken William’s clouded trees of Eventide and taken them into a surreal landscape, holding not just his palette, but all the colours of autumn’s equinox. With mastery, the distinctions between copse and sky become fused, woven together in the breath-taking world of Autumn Equinox.

What is a Moorcroft second? All our art pottery is closely inspected before it leaves the Moorcroft factory and the selection process is as rigorous as any in the world. As a result, not all pieces emerge unblemished in their quality assessment. The fault or faults may be in the finish of a piece, whether it be a tiny tubeline miss, an incorrectly painted petal, or a small glaze run. Seconds are not ‘red-dotted’, all of them are far too good for that, and each seconds piece has a charm and individuality of its own. Any fault is not structural and the piece can still be used for the purpose it was made. 

The 'Was' price shown is the Best Quality RRP of this design and shape.
