Moorcroft Pottery - Our Stock

Moorcroft Pottery

From these image many people will immediately recognise the distinct design and colour of Moorcroft pottery as these much loved pieces are still as popular today as they were in the 1920s when this set was produced.

William Moorcroft began his career in 1897 as a designer for the Staffordshire potter James Macintyre & co. He enjoyed great success there, particularly with his first range of innovative pottery called Florian Ware. Unusually for the time, he adopted the practice of signing his name, or his initials, on nearly all of the pottery he designed, the production of which he personally oversaw.

In 1912 William Moorcroft set up his own company with financial support from department store Liberty’s and moved production to a new factory.

The Moorcroft factory produced a range of domestic tableware items, but it was their tube lined, hand painted art pottery that set them apart, and earned them legions of keen collectors, most famously Queen Mary, who granted Moorcroft a royal appointment in 1928 which served to greatly enhance their reputation.
