This beautiful lidded box features the gorgeous trademark blue background that Moorcroft is so well known for. The lid is decorated with large open anenomes in various shades of pink, mauve and purple. Green foliage sets them off nicely. Three smaller flowers surround the side of the box. The lid lifts off. The label on the base (and inside of the lid) date this piece to between 1953 and 1978. This box also has a gold label on the side that says simply Moorcroft England. The base also is embossed with Moorcroft and Made in England.
SIZE: Diameter is about 4 5/8 inches. Height (to the top of the finial) is about 3 inches.
CONDITION: This box is in excellent condition; there are no cracks or chips in the pottery or glaze. There is the typical glaze crazing, which is most visible on the cream colored base and the under-side of the lid.
This is a lovely piece of Moorcroft that would grace any collection.
