Moorcroft Numbered Edition Kingsborough Gardens Vase

Moorcroft Numbered Edition Kingsborough Gardens Vase, MCR-121 Originally founded as a studio in 1897 within a large ceramic company, James Macintyre & Co. Moorcroft pottery soon made its mark on the world. Today, Moorcroft leads the world of art pottery with its own distinctive design style. We are proud to present this Moorcroft collection featuring stunning pottery designs. Mackintosh championed the Art Nouveau design movement, and the stylised rose became one of his design motifs that today he is synonymous with worldwide. In 1901 ship owner Robert James Rowat acquired 14 Kingsborough Gardens in Glasgow and privately commissioned Mackintosh to design white-painted furniture for his drawing room. In 1902 a pair of free-standing cabinets with door panels depicting Mackintosh ladies shrouded in white, each holding aloft a pink rose, were created. A payment of £40 was made by Mrs Rowat on 10th May 1905 which may relate to this project. In honour of the home in which these Mackintosh roses bloomed, Emma has added a band of rich green leaves that add a new colour dimension to the original colour palette used by Mackintosh of pink and white. A classic Moorcroft dark blue ground completes the design, enabling these Glasgow roses to flower for eternity.
