This year on Staffordshire Day, we have an extra reason to celebrate as Moorcroft’s Heritage Visitor Centre has reopened after 4 long months. Visitors are now able to return and enjoy our Museum and Grade II listed bottle oven. Once, Stoke-on-Trent had over 2000 bottle kilns, but today only 47 remain and Moorcroft’s kiln, built in 1919, is the only updraught kiln in the whole of England. We celebrate our history with City Guardians – with iconic bottle kilns looming over terraced houses and the symbol of hope and resilience, the rainbow, arcing overhead.
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.
