Transforming the applied arts since 1897

Purple Emperor 576/9 Vase

Members Only Limited Edition

This magnificent butterfly flies high in the tree-tops of well-wooded landscapes in central-southern England. The adults are extremely elusive and numbers have declined steadily during the twentieth century and it is now restricted to some of the larger woods in southern England. Vicky saw the Purple Emperor butterfly on a TV programme, in which the film crew used anchovies to attract them, and was amazed at how beautiful the butterflies were. Vicky’s design places the ultramarine butterflies wingtip to wingtip, and then fills the void between them with incredibly tactile raised globules- a rare but remarkable treat from Moorcroft’s tubeliners.
