Moorcroft Fresia Pattern

For over 100 years Moorcroft Pottery has been famed and prized throughout the world. These wonderful, decorative and unique pieces of art will surely be the heirlooms of tomorrow.
Founded in 1897 as a studio within a large ceramic company, James Macintyre & Co, Moorcroft pottery soon became famous. 24-year-old designer William Moorcroft started personalizing each piece of pottery produced with his own signature or initials. For James Macintyre’s name and reputation it did little, and in 1912 they split..
In 1904, Moorcroft won a gold medal at the St Louis International Exhibition. This followed with further medals and commendations, culminating in the appointment of the Moorcroft company as Potters to Her Mmmajesty The Queen in 1928.
William Moorcroft died in 1945; his eldest son, Walter, took over management and design.
Then Moorcroft seldom prospered. In 1984, the family sold their shares on the open market.
Since 1993 Moorcroft has been controlled by the Edwards family.
Auctioneers Christies and Sotheby’s hold a dedicated Moorcroft sale each year. Many national museums such as the Victoria & Albert museum have significant pieces of Moorcroft pottery in their permanent collections.

  2. What beautiful jars! Each one is so unique, and yet you see an underlying theme in many of them. Seems that Moorcroft potters have never lost their touch through the years.
