Seconds Garden of Delights PLQ11 Plaque

Limited Edition

150 years ago, Kelmscott Manor became the country home of William Morris in June 1871. The founder of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain, drew great inspiration from the unspoilt authenticity of the house's architecture and craftsmanship, and its organic relationship with its setting, especially its garden. The front garden was walled with a summer house in one corner and contained many standard roses. While the garden’s many old trees, included an ancient black mulberry at the rear of the house.

Senior Designer Rachel Bishop’s design encompasses the essence of the Arts and Crafts Movement with its intricate design, rich colour palette and Arts and Crafts motifs. There are echoes of Morris’s Tulip design, with small daisy like flowers scattered amongst vibrant red flowers, which look almost like ripened fruit ready to be carefully picked by hand from his garden of delights. The tiny seeds within fruit like flower are each tubed with great skill and accuracy, while the metallic oxide colours that Rachel has chosen, bring a richness and warmth to her limited-edition vase and plaque.

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.
