Beautiful colors of pink, green, blue, black, grey and brown. The piece was made by the Moorcroft Pottery in England and is so marked on the bottom. From what I have read, the patter is called Gypsy and was designed by Rachel Bishop. This piece has been in my personal collection since 2002. The vase is marked with an impressed mark MOORCROFT on the underside of the foot and the words MADE IN ENGLAND.
The mark is very faint and hard to read, even with a loupe. There are various other marks there as well and probably the artists initials see the photos. A very attractive and desirable vase!
I do my best to describe all items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability. Some of my photos may be somewhat lighter or darker than actual to better show detail or color. However, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or with requests for additional pictures. Our store has many unique and interesting items in several different categories from 35 years of our dealing and collecting antiques and collectables. It is in excellent mint original condition.
Please look closely at the photos as they are an important part of my description of this item. There are no chips, flea bites, cracks, hairlines or repairs. I checked the vase over carefully with a black light and found no evidence of damage or repairs. I see no crazing to the glaze. Anything else you think you see is a reflection of light in the photos.
Please keep in mind these photos can be blown up at least 8X-10X times normal, so anything you see will look 8X-10X times larger in the photos than it really is. Please note: if you see a dark spot in the photos it is from my camera and is not a mark on the piece. It will be either just to the right of center towards the bottom or slightly above center on the right side of the photo.
