Our Moorcroft Collection is one of the most comprehensive to be found worldwide. Not only do we have a great collection, but we also happen to be rather knowledgeable about Moorcroft Pottery. Take the marks on the base of each piece, for example. Did you know that each tells its own story? You can find the designer's monogram: the painter's mark: the name 'Moorcroft': the place of manufacture and the date represented by a special Moorcroft symbol. The colours of the Moorcroft pieces are based on metallic oxides and applied entirely by hand. It is easy to see why Moorcroft is unique, totally individual and utterly fascinating for collectors. 1997 was Moorcroft's centenary year which saw an unprecedented surge in interest from collectors around the world. Stockists of Moorcroft are few and far between. At the UK Gift Company, we are proud of our unsurpassed collection.
Of particular interest to collectors for this year has been the introduction of the Moorcroft Honeysuckle Ginger Jars. This is a collection of four Ginger Jars, each designed by Emma Bossons FRSA. Also eagerly anticipated has been the fascinating new range, the Moorcroft Hamlet Collection. These intriguing pieces are designed by Kerry Goodwin and have a quaint architectural feel about them. However, we believe that demand for this range will be exceeded by the Moorcroft Bramble Revisited collection. Designed by Alicia Amison, these pieces recall one of our most successful designs of a decade ago. Also, worthy of acclaim is the ever-popular Moorcroft Anna Lily Collection, still in demand as much ever. Designer. Nicola Slaney has added further wonderful pieces to her most successful collection ever. Next in line is the elegant and beautiful Moorcroft Peacock Parade. This range was launched towards the end of 2013 and was a runaway success for customers leading up to Christmas. A favourite amongst colleagues here at The UK Gift Company has been the Moorcroft Blue Heaven range. We feel sure that the cool, elegant, almost minimalist, lines of Nicola Slaney's designs will prove an instant hit amongst those with contemporary tastes. The Moorcroft Queen's Choice collection was launched at the time of the Golden Jubilee in 2002. Designed by Emma Bossons FRSA, it has been a consistent 'performer' ever since, such that Emma has added a handful of gorgeous new pieces this year. Our most popular pieces from last year were undoubtedly the Moorcroft Legacy Collection, commmemorating the centenary of the birth of the company back in 1913. Finally, we mustn't forget the perennial jewel in the crown - this year's Moorcroft Pottery Limited Editions - a veritable feast of rich and rare pieces, available in very low numbers.
