Seconds Penny Black 520/5 Vase

Numbered Edition

Loved by the Victorians, the tiny, two-toned Penny Black flower coloured deep violet to black and edged with white, conjure up nostalgic images. In much the same way as the world's first adhesive postage stamp, issued in Britain in 1840 and printed in black with an effigy of Queen Victoria, this little Moorcroft vase is set to send smiles around the globe.

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.
