Situated on the east coast of Yorkshire at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby has a rich maritime heritage, as it is said to be where Captain Cook learned his seamanship. It is also home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey where Caedmon, the earliest English poet, lived. Designer, Kerry Goodwin took inspiration from the picturesque setting and recreated this multi-coloured and charming harbour town.
Whitby radiates the uniquely nostalgic feel of an English harbour, to the point that you can almost hear the gulls screeching and wailing overhead and the smell of wet fish baskets and the tantalizing aroma of fish and chips, doused in salt and vinegar emanating from a harbour side building.
For 2018 Kerry presents Whitby on a prestige vase giving the town the full honour it deserves as a destination of great historic interest. The size of this prestigious vase enables the full charm of the town to be seen by all.
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.Was: £2,860.00
