Moorcroft Numbered Edition Swansong Jug

Moorcroft Numbered Edition Swansong Jug MCR-157 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. In 1915 Mackintosh moved to Glebe Place in Chelsea where he rented two small adjacent studios. Here he found the warmth and companionship he needed and made many friends. It was during his time in Chelsea from 1915-1923 that Mackintosh produced numerous textile designs. In Swansong, Kerry pays tribute to the designs of Mackintosh’s latter days. The design features stylised tulips, but as the plant is so abstract it could as easily be the plant honesty, or a closed flower bud. Mackintosh explored this ‘tulip’ theme in a number of designs, experimenting with other variations in detailing and colour schemes. Designs such as these were among the most progressive of the period in Britain. Kerry’s choice of colour palette was inspired by the rich gold, purple and black of Mackintosh’s original design, yet she has added her own palette of a soft duck egg blue to lighten the design. A clever use of a mustard coloured clay adds to the drama of this diminutive jug. All articles purchased from We are lovingly and securely dispatched with our elegant packaging.
