Seconds Treetops View PLQ2 Plaque
On February 5th 1952, Princess Elizabeth, then 25, spent the afternoon with her cine-camera capturing a herd of rhinos from her elevated vantage point above the Treetops waterhole in Aberdare National Park. That night, as she slept cradled in a fig tree, she actually ascended to her throne. This is a dramatic Moorcroft design. A lone rhino calf sits as two others sup at the waterhole, while fig trees rise like cumulonimbus clouds lifting Treetops towards the distant outline of Mount Kenya, known across the world as the mountain of brightness.
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.
