Seconds Paix 226/12 Vase

Vase

Poppies and cornflowers are both symbols of World War I and World War II. In the Commonwealth, poppies represent soldiers who lost their lives, as the flowers, red petals poignantly emerged in the churned-up battlefields. The French equivalent, le bleuet, or cornflower is less well known but artificial cornflowers are sold around 8th May and the funds raised go to former combatants. Today both flowers represent peace – or paix in French.

On her selection of four vases and a framed plaque, Emma, has applied a bouquet of bright red common poppies and vibrant blue cornflowers, some of which fade to mauve in the distance. Sheaves of harvest corn burst from the bunch, complete with delicate herringbone patterns tubelined within.

 

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.
