- Pattern: African Lily
- Size: Approx. 8cm high
- Grade: First/best quality but with a small chip
A lovely small brush vase in the popular African Lily pattern by Walter Moorcroft.
There is a small chip on the base rim as shown in photos and a tight faint hairline about 1 inch/3 cm long running down from top rim. Neither can be seen when displayed with main flower at front.
It has all the factory markings on the base as shown.. Please check photos carefully to satisfy yourself of actual condition as we do not describe minor factory blemishes/marks that meet the quality control standards of the factory.
Moorcroft pottery is completely hand-made and hand-painted in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England and as such no two pieces are ever the same. They have very high quality standards and grade all their pieces into one of three categories – Best/First, Graded or Seconds. Their Best/First quality pieces have no discernible flaw. Graded pieces have such a slight imperfection that it is not felt significant enough to downgrade it to Seconds and as such the base is marked with a Gr. Seconds are signified by either a silver line or a red dot on the base.
