Seconds Wayside Bells 80/9 Vase

Limited Edition

Wordsworth loved to recall the days when his poetic faculty awakened and began to inspire him. In The Prelude, Book 8, he was captivated by the beauty of wild foxgloves, with their upward shooting stems and bell-shaped petals and how a drop of rain or dew could transform them into a sight to beholden.

“When the foxglove, one by one,
Upwards, through every stage of its tall stem,
Had shed its bells, and stood by the wayside
Dismantled, with a single one, perhaps,
Left at the ladder’s top, with which the plant
Appeared to stoop, as slender blades of grass
Tipped with a bead of rain or dew, behold!”

Foxgloves have for many years been a part of Moorcroft’s design history, and Vicky Lovatt has chosen a delightful pink variety, with petals tinged with a hint of burgundy, for her floral tribute vase. The spires of the foxgloves shoot into the sky, while the delicate bell-shaped petals merrily sway in the Lakeland breeze so that we can all admire the freehand painted dots in the inside of each flower which give the foxgloves their unique and distinctive appearance.
