Moorcroft Numbered Edition The May Queen Vase

Moorcroft Numbered Edition The May Queen Vase, MCR-018 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. There can be no mistaking the style of The May Queen, with its elegant, feminine linework and a muted colour palette, all of which speaks volumes for the name Mackintosh, lauded across the world. The May Queen was originally a panel in the ladies’ luncheon room situate inside Miss Cranston’s Ingram Street tearooms in Glasgow. The original panel was created by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, wife of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. No surprises here, doubly so because Nicola loves the subtle, warm colours that Margaret used. Her original panel was made to sit alongside its twin – an equally famous design called The Wassail, and as Nicola says, “You can look at The May Queen over and over again and still see new things. It matters not how you study the images. The linework leads you on through stylised people, patterns, shapes and hieroglyphics and right into a place which is restful, beautiful and totally inspiring.
