Seconds Lucky 158/6 Vase

Numbered Edition

The omen of a black cat varies from culture to culture. Many will delight in the sight of a slinky black feline silhouette crossing their path. As lovers of animals at Moorcroft, superstition does not affect our affection for such creatures; the more varied and interesting, the better. Paul found simple beauty in the supple twisting and turning of a cat, frolicking in an unsuccessful butterfly chase. The clean colour combination of blue, black and white helps to illuminate the movement of these elegant creatures, dancing to their own tunes. His celebration of such unadorned natural grace makes a wonderfully appealing design, which could only ever be granted as a lucky talisman.


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.
