Heritage Collection

Welcome to the Moorcroft Heritage Collection page. Discover specially-selected designs from years gone by which have long since been retired from production. Periodically, Moorcroft launches a small wave of these historic pots, saved especially for connoisseurs. The age of Heritage Collection pots can vary from 5 to 30 years old and many are impossible to find on the secondary market. Only one of each design is available, meaning that time is of the essence for those who wish to secure a piece.

We hope you enjoy browsing a selection of notable Moorcroft designs, confined to the history books but available once more for you to appreciate and acquire.
