Moorcroft - Hibiscus Toothpick Vase
This is an attractive smaller cylindrical hallmarked Moorcroft toothpick holder.
This vintage ceramic art pottery features yellow and aubergine hued hibiscus flowers in full bloom, detailed with delicate slip lines against a pleasing blue/green background.
This nice little sample of highly collectible Moorcroft pottery most probably hails from the 1950s or 1960s and was likely created for the Canadian market.
Moorcroft art pottery has been and continues to be made in the celebrated pottery area of Stoke-on-Trent, England. William Moorcroft began making his stunning creations in 1897 under the Macintyre & Co Ltd name. In 1913 he established his own pottery under his own name and in 1928 he received a Royal Warrant ("Potter to Her Majesty the Queen"). William's son, Walter took over the operations of the firm in 1945. We think that this toothpick holder was produced under Walter's watch at the pottery.
In excellent condition. An unusual item. A great piece for any Moorcroft collector.
Measures 2.5" (6.5cm,65mm) tall.
