A beautiful vase from Moorcroft’s Three Williams Collection



A beautiful vase from Moorcroft’s Three Williams Collection  It is shape number 401/5 so stands approximately 5 inches (12.5cms) without the lid, approx. 5.5 inches with the lid on.This is a limited edition of just 40 pieces. The Three Williams Collection celebrates the work of three inspirational designers – the Williams Moorcroft, Morris and de Morgan.Moorcroft designer Nicola Slaney has cleverly adapted the original 1883 Strawberry Thief to fit a lidded pot that works as an item of tableware in a traditional English high tea presentation. Employing Morris’s classic symmetry and intricate detail with both the strawberries and the thrushes, she has harnessed the vibrant indigos and warm reds amongst garden greens.
