Seconds Diana's Favourite 80/6 Vase


Originally made exclusively for William Sissons Gallery

Helmsley's parish church, dedicated to All Saints, dates back a thousand years and more and was a favourite snowdrop destination for Moorcroft retailer, Diana Sissons. For many years, Diana and her husband William would wave the flag for Moorcroft in their delightful shop in Helmsley, one of North Yorkshire's most popular and picturesque market towns. Sadly, Diana passed away but both Moorcroft and Diana’s family, friends and colleagues know that in the retail world she was among the best of the best and will always be fondly remembered and highly-thought of.

There is something beguiling about carpets of snowdrops scattered across the ground. As the world awakens, the white frost on the ground is replaced with a snow-white covering of snowdrops instead. In Diana’s memory, Senior Designer, Rachel, carefully places a flurry of snowdrops, one of her favourite flowers, onto a bramble blue and ivory backdrop. Rachel’s snowdrops carry a glamour of yesteryear, and offer a nod of upended hearts. No wonder they were one of Diana’s favourites.


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.
