DESIGNS OF RARITY

Here you will discover a selection of our Designs of Rarity, each one special and rare. Pieces will come and go, inevitably rarely available for long, so time is of the essence when you see a design that you desire, as it may disappear in Moorcroft’s historical archives before too long. Designs of Rarity will include designers’ trials, very small limited editions, original designers’ watercolours, flambé painted pieces recreating the red colour palette of yesteryear and unique connoisseurs’ pieces, in some cases with only one of each piece in existence.

Rarity: Only 1 made

Markings: Trial and Date

RRP: £295

 

What could almost be mistaken for a butterfly, is in fact the Garden Tiger Moth. They sometimes feed and bask in sunshine and may be seen moving rapidly across bare ground when fully grown. Left undisturbed, the moth will happily go unnoticed, except by Vicky Lovatt who took inspiration from Garden Tiger Moths gathered amongst ripe raspberries. Only one example of this design, in this colourway has been made, with a grey moth, with distinctive black and white markings.

A prestige Town of Flowers vase has been given the incredible flambé painted technique, only known to two of Moorcroft’s painters, including the legendary longest serving painter, Wendy Mason, who has been creating Moorcroft art pottery for over 30 years. The Arts and Crafts style buildings are shrouded in tones of deep red and blue, creating an effect that is most mesmerising to behold.
