The Moorcroft Legacy 4/5 Vase

Limited Edition

On 22nd April 1913 our founder William Moorcroft incorporated W. Moorcroft Ltd. Aged only 41, William already had 16 years of ceramic design under his belt having worked at James Macintyre & Co in Burslem since 1897. He would run the company that carried his name for a further 32 years until passing the mantel to his oldest son, Walter Moorcroft, in 1945.

111 years later, having survived two World Wars, recessions and over 11 decades of major historical events, we commemorate our incorporation as designer Kerry Goodwin brings you The Moorcroft Legacy – a limited edition vase featuring our iconic factory. The original factory had three main bottle ovens built in 1913, 1916 and 1919 with a further two smaller kilns used solely for lustre and flambe firings. Due to the Clean Air Act of 1956, all five bottle kilns ceased being used and sadly four were demolished. Kerry’s design celebrates the sole survivor that can still be visited today at the Heritage Visitor Centre in Burslem – ensuring the Moorcroft legacy lives on.
