Seconds 1901 769/4 Vase

Limited Edition

Blackwell is a place of endless inspiration for Nicola. Time and time again its enchanting secrets and decorative detail appeal to her senses. It was almost 17 years ago when the Moorcroft designer first visited the Arts and Crafts House overlooking Lake Windermere and designed by Architect, Mackay Hugh Baillie-Scott in 1901. Ever since, she has been discovering original decorative features by leading Arts & Crafts designers, leaf-shaped door handles, ornate window catches, spectacular plasterwork, carved wood panelling and stained glass. Since her first Blackwell design, Nicola has perfected the art of recreating this special stained-glass effect- black leadwork and panes of colour, tinged with the slightest ash-grey. Her latest homage to Blackwell House sees blue birds, ruby tulips, roses and roundels filled with magenta spots. For admirers of rich, luxurious colour and for those who love a good story, 1901 meets and exceeds every expectation.

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.
