Moorcroft, Columbine, Bowl, Vintage, England, Walter,
A truly vintage round deep blue Columbine Bowl from Moorcroft.
The edge is slightly rolled.
A colourful yellow and burgundy Columbine blossom graces the centre of the interior of this dark cobalt hued beauty. Beautifully and well made.
Likely made under Walter Moorcroft, the son of William Moorcroft.
William began creating this popular art pottery in 1897. The company still produces beautiful art pottery wares today, out of the same Stoke-on-Trent "Works" that William and Walter both worked at.
The underside of the bowl is also signed and shows the appropriate marks (imprinted).
Some minor slight scratch marks on the outer edge which should not detract from the use and/or enjoyment of this gorgeous item.
Created from the Moorcroft's studio own mix of Staffordshire clay, formed in their own moulds, lathed into the perfect shape, decorated with tube-lined slip, painted according to their artist's designs in their own studio, and twice fired for brilliant colours, Moorcroft pottery remains a beautiful example of the old tradition of high end ceramics making that have been produced on location in Stoke-on Trent in England for hundreds of years. Inspired by the original arts and crafts designs of founder William Moorcroft since 1897, the company continues to produce stunning high quality ceramics today with its team of gifted artists in a continuing tradition of beautiful art pottery.
Small batch productions are a trademark of Moorcroft production that increases its desirability in the collectible market.
Originally founded in 1897 in England, Moorcroft Pottery is a world renowned brand of handmade, hand painted vases, dishes, lamps, artwork, and more. Moorcroft is highly collectible. The world profile of Moorcroft continues to grow internationally, both in quality and in perceived value, making it more popular now than ever.
